Rotten Watch Prediction
90%

If you're able to get through the trailer for The Birth Of A Nation without feeling steady chills and maybe even getting a little teary eyed, then I'm not sure I even want to know you. We can't be friends. Even the 90 second glimpse into this film is deeply moving. Considering the issues and the current backdrop of race "dialogue" in our country right now it appears a timely historical piece. The films is about the life of Nat Turner, who led a slave rebellion during the early nineteenth century. Nate Parker directs, produces and stars as Nat, pulling the trifecta that could land him very much in the center of Oscar discussion come the turn end of the year. The movie was lauded at Sundance, and is coming out right around the start of the awards' season.

The Birth Of A Nation is currently sitting at 83% on the Rotten Tomatoes scale, with close to forty reviews registered. I think it actually climbs through the week. I don't often set flicks on that course, but after reading the negative reviews as opposed to those who loved it, I think the latter wins out. I suspect we're hearing about this movie for quite some time.
