His hopefulness might derive from the fact that he had once been free and had a family to go back to, should he escape that hell hole. It can't be said for the other slaves there. I didn't like his attitude towards the women. It wasn't right.

The movie theater was packed. When Solomon mentioned my city in the movie, it pissed me off because everyone started chuckling. The assumption being that they're above that in good old Canada. I wanted to scream for them to read about Marie Angelique.
And then when I walked out, I heard somebody say "in those times..." and I hurried to the door because I woulda smacked a bish

oh wow. ours was sparse. there were quite a few white people there as well. 

and to the latter, yeah that doesn't even phase me anymore. i'm entirely too desensitized to nations gawking at what they feel is the brutal savagery of america while having not so clean hands. people like to feel progressive i suppose. 

good that you made it out without throwin bows. Hug

I obviously didn't like the attitude Solomon held towards the women slaves but I'm glad it was written that way because it speaks to the truth of our reality instead of hitting false notes just to make us feel better.

^^^ i can agree with that rt. while an unpleasant feeling, it's staying true to the time, the subject and encouraging conversation.  i can't be mad at that.

however, i will say this, i don't see why people walked out in the screenings. while obviously grotesque actions as subject matter, i didn't find it overwhelming to that point. clearly, i speak for only myself though.

It wasn't any more overwhelming than any other movie like this.

And I wanna know how much Brad Pitt got paid for those 5 minutes he was in the movie.

^^^ i'm sayin. like people were walking out of this? i really expected worse for that kind of reaction. 

and that's a damn good question. i'm mad that fool got billing and was shown in trailers like he was doin something.

I hope this movie sweeps at the Oscars and the black actors/actresses get nominated!
