What did we think

  1. Part 12 Years a Slave, part Gone With the Wind and part Get Out, Antebellum explores the horrors of slavery from a 2020 perspective. It's difficult to speak about without spoiling the film but this is, in many ways, the biggest problem with movie. Instead of telling the story in a straightforward way, it presents the story as a puzzle that needs to be solved. It's an intriguing story and mode choice but it does come across as heavy-handed and somewhat predictable. While Janelle MonĂ¡e and the rest of the cast do their best with the material, the film overall is only okay.
