Sundance 2016: 'The Birth of a Nation' Review

I've only spoken to one person who's seen The Birth of a Nation, so I am genuinely curious how the film played with people at its premiere here in Sundance. For me, this biopic of Nat Turner is pedestrian in many ways but also powerfully emotional in others. And as an indictment of our shameful slavery past, well, it's damning. My review is up at Screen International.
