Amistad Movie Synopsis & Plot
Based on a true story, several Africans are put on trial in the United States for killing the captain of the ship they were being transported on, and one lawyer challenges the politics of the time saying that they had the right to kill the man because he was selling them as slaves.
Steven Spielberg delivers what he does best. Amistad looks into our dark history (which isn't really that long ago) and expressed itself with vivid realness and stunning cinematography. Amistad is tightly wrapped around true facts and the great acting performances by some of the leading actors of today seems to take you right into the reality of the film.
