Flick of the Day

Director: Steven Spielberg
Actors: Djimon Hounsou, Morgan Freeman, Anthony Hopkins, Matthew McConaughey, Nigel Hawthorne, Pete Postlethwaite, Stellan Skarsgard, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anna Paquin, David Paymer
Year: 1997

Synopsis: A group of Africans stand trial for the murder of their captors aboard a slave ship.

Actor Djimon Honsou was certainly robbed of an Oscar nomination for this poignant, beautiful performance of an enslaved African fighting for his freedom. This film is one of the best films I've ever seen and it beautifully tells the story of human will and power. You should definitely see it.
