THIS MIGHT BE THE BEST MOVIE OF THE DECADE! it is such a good movie and teaches one of the most important lessons ever: slavery. it's in the century when we had slavery. This white woman wants to write about what it's like to be a slave and tries to get slaves to say it themselves. They're to scared they'll get caught because back in the days if they talked to other white people about their work and got caught, they would lose they're job and usually the owners tell other owners so you'll never get a job again. This is also a bestselling book but it's for the ages 18 and up. The movie due to some words, is probably for kids 10 and above.
