In the pre-Civil War South, a sadistic plantation-owner brutalizes his slaves to the point of them heaving no other choice but to rebel. Always obedient, peaceful and honest old slave Tom plays a central role in this tragedy.

Just saw this movie on Turner Classic Movies last night. One of the BEST films I've ever seen! I laughed. I cried. I got angry. And I LOVED the ending. I loved the way the film was done, especially with the angel scene and the ghost. The locations were amazing and the actors and actresses were outstanding. I had no idea that slavery included the sale of white people as well. Little Eva's love for the slaves was so beautiful. She really moved me and when she died, I cried right along with Topsy. I cried when Tom was separated from his family and when the lead actress discovered her mother. I loved it when the army came to free all of the slaves and could feel the celebration coming through my television set. I truly wish that anyone and everyone who reads my words will have the opportunity to see this movie. I truly do think it's one of the best movies ever. A MUST see movie! Excellent!
