Nat Turner was a former slave who on witnessing the scope of slavery across America chose to head a liberation movement in the form of a slave rebellion that resulted in a violent retaliation from the white supremacists in Virginia, 1831. This periodic drama film introduces the audience to the world in which Black people were enslaved in - inhumanly treated at the peril of the white race. The chilling shot of a young white child playing a game with a lynching rope around another black girls neck represents this serious period of history in a thought provoking scene.

Will Arnett has revealed he teased 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' director Jonathan Liebesman on set by giving the lactose intolerant filmmaker ice cream every day.
Will Arnett tormented his lactose-intolerant director on 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' with ice cream sundaes throughout the shoot.
The 44-year-old actor discovered Jonathan Liebesman suffered from the food allergy but also had a sweet tooth for ice cream so as a joke he presented him with sundaes every day, and the filmmaker couldn't resist even though it made him ill.
In an interview with The Guardian newspaper, Arnett said: ''He didn't resist. After it became a daily thing, he'd say, 'No, no, no, no, no! I do not want any more ice cream!' And we'd go, 'OK, we'll just leave it, uh, right here.' He'd always buckle and eat it - like angrily, furiously!''

After being confined to a mental asylum for 17 years, Grace B Jones gets released following years of abuse and torment at the hands of mental health nurses. She goes to live with her brother Landy Bretthorse, his wife Bea and two young girls in Boonville, Missouri despite Bea's concerns about her instability particularly around the children. Although Grace seems a nice, friendly person and treats the girls kindly, she has regularly bouts of hysteria which first come about after a boat accident during the calamitous 1951 flood. Is there enough of Grace left to save? Or will the household conclude that sometimes a broken woman is beyond repair?
'Saving Grace B Jones' is based on a true story surrounding first time feature film director Connie Stevens' childhood in the fifties when she was sent away from her home in Brooklyn to Missouri to live with family friends after witnessing a brutal murder. She was to find, that summer, that that terrible crime was not the thing that would have the biggest effect on her the rest of her life. This shocking drama has been co-written by Jeffry Elison in his screenwriting debut and first premiered in 2009 at the Philadelphia Film Festival/Cinefest. It is now available to see in theaters everywhere now.

John Leguizamo played a cruel prank on CARLITO'S WAY co-star Penelope Ann Miller after the pair fell out - by shrinking her costumes.
The actor took an instant dislike to Miller during the shooting of the 1993 film.
In his upcoming autobiography PIMPS, HOS, PLAYA HATAS, AND ALL THE REST OF MY HOLLYWOOD FRIENDS, Leguizamo writes, "You really have to know Penelope Ann Miller to dislike her.
"She's the kind of girl who would flirt with anyone in the world as long as people are watching."
Leguizamo and the wardrobe department decided to get even with Miller - by taking in her clothes an inch at a time.
He writes, "Every day her outfits are getting a little tighter, a little tighter. She goes on a starvation diet.
"Watch the movie, you'll see she gets thinner and thinner."
Lisa Picard is a struggling New York actress who has had her 15 minutes and just doesn't realize it yet. She starred in a rather carnal breakfast-in-bed commercial for Wheat Chex that made her notorious and got her fired from her steady job playing "Sally Starfish" in a production that tours elementary schools.
"If the director's cut could be seen, this would be a non-issue," she grouses in "Lisa Picard Is Famous" -- an inept documentary by an under-prepared filmmaker who has decided this starlet is on the verge of being discovered and he's determined to capture the moment when it happens.
In actuality, "Lisa Picard Is Famous" is a mock documentary by actor-director Griffin Dunne ("Practical Magic," "Addicted to Love") -- and a whimsically sardonic concept that just doesn't quite congeal because the movie is more uncomfortable than it is funny.
