About this item

DVD, R, 152 minutes, DREAMWORKS / UNIVERS

Steven Spielberg's debut film for DreamWorks Pictures, "Amistad," stars a distinguished cast led by Morgan Freeman, Anthony Hopkins, Djimon Hounsou and Matthew McConaughey. Earning acclaim for its film making power, "Amistad" was honored with four Academy Award nominations; Best Supporting Actor (Anthony Hopkins), Best Music, Best Costume Design and Best Cinematography. Based on a true story, the movie chronicles the incredible journey of a group of enslaved Africans who overtake their captor's ship and attempt to return to their beloved homeland. When the ship, La Amistad, is seized, these captives are brought to the United States where they are charged with murder and await their fate in prison. An enthralling battle ensues that captures the attention of the entire nation, confronting the very foundation of the American justice system. But for the men and women on trial, it is simply a fight for the basic right of all mankind...freedom.

5.0 stars by TheOldAVGuy

An excellent, historically accurate movie. For those truly interested in the principles behind the founding of the United States Of America, this movie is a prime example of those principles at work. The Supreme Court argument given by Anthony Hopkins near the end of the movie embodies all that is good and just in our founding principles.
