Quotes

Luke: "Luke", you said, "I trust you. Take these horses up into Ohio and bring me back the money. And then I'll make you free". As God is my judge, Master, that's what you said.
Mr. Stillwell: And that's what I meant.
Luke: And I turned my back on freedom, walked back into slavery, back into hell, cos' you trusted me and I trusted you. And now you're telling me, I'm sold.
Mr. Stillwell: I'm as helpless as you.
Luke: But you ain't sold, Master. Say something about that.
Mr. Stillwell: There's nothing I can say.
Luke: But there's got to be something you can say, ...

It's a movie about slavery so on that note the movie already has a grim tone to it. Technically, no one once to see a movie about slavery with a happy tone to it.

The late great Ozzie Davis plays a house slave brainwashed by the master who used the love of Jesus to do so. Ozzie eventually sees the light when his master, who promised he would never sell his slaves, sells him to a new master who sees his slaves as nothing but property, and as such makes the old slave how much slavery sucks.

Donne Warwick plays another type of House slave that catches the masters attention, if you get my drift, and she somewhat caught in-between being better than the rest of the slaves, but at the same time no different than them.

The movies best point is that is shows you the different types of mind sets slaves had back in the day. From slaves who want to be free to those who actually think things are find the way they are.

It's no 12 years a slave, but it paints just as Grim of a tale without the happy ending.
