On Opinion: Movie on slavery is painful necessity

Comments

My fear is that people will react to the blood and gore and not have any real sympathy for those going though the pain. Will people be able to differentiate between this type of movie and a horror movie?

Imagine being free and then with no warning being set upon, kidnapped and made a slave, and there is nothing you can do about it. To me, it is the terrifying reality that you have no control over your own body or your life. You are entirely at the mercy of others and so is your family.

I wonder that more slaves did not find a way to commit suicide and yes, I believe that if they had done so God would have welcomed them home.
