Things are exactly the same as they were in 1817. Except women and minorities can vote, we have indoor toilets, they don’t burn widows for learning arithmetic.

I called in Dane to come and do some chemistry reads, which is what Hollywood does nowadays where you have two actors read together to see how their chemistry is. So I had Dane come in and about 12 other actors to read opposite him that day. And Emory Cohen came in, he was about the 8th of the day. And immediately there was this tension between them in the room. I gave them an ice-breaker question; who was their favorite actor? Emory said, “Well, I always liked Marlon Brando.” Dane said, “I always liked James Dean.” And they proceeded to argue about who was better, Marlon Brando or James Dean. I thought they had this definite connection and a chip on their shoulder for each other. And that was exactly the dynamic for the movie. The first scene I shot with them was the cafeteria scene. Ray Liotta came to visit me on set that day and he was just like, “Man, looks like you’ve got two real winners here.” - Derek Cianfrance
I would not watch this movie again. That being said, it was a stunning, heroic, and brave film that was beautifully shot. The brutality depicted is something that has not yet been dared to be filmed, and it was difficult to watch.
Slavery should not be romanticized, and this film definitely does not romanticize it. The best part of the movie was the fact that it didn’t try to comfort white viewers at the end over slavery. It’s realistic aspects were the most convincing parts.
Great film, emotionally taxing, but wouldn’t watch it again. It’s too difficult.
