This is really a good movie. The Journey of August King, played by Jason Patric who was a lonely widowed. He came across a runaway slave and once he realized her tragedy was greater than his. He decided to help this young women Thandie Newton hide from the slave catcher (her father) and others. He hide this women and help her towards the road to freedom. This is one the best slave narratives that I have seen in awhile. A great story that I will share with my granddaughter Amya. I know that she will love this.
Should have been an award winning film!!!
I want to commend the reports in here and I wholeheartedly agree with most of them.
I have not figured out why they beheaded some folks in the movie..I realise there was the slavery aspect and attitudes of slave owners etc. I liked Patrick's permormance and the slave girl actress (Thane?)as well.
have not figured out if there was some religious angle in there as well.
Thoroughly enjoyable and I think a lot of the other reviewers have said a lot of what I would as well.
