    Is it the case that the portrayal was significantly inaccurate? If so then how so?

    In particular did you find the portrayals of enforced subservience (which you mention) inacurate, or just uncomfortable?  Apart from the "story" itself (which is obviously fiction, and perhaps intended as a vehicle to something else) were the character portrayals cartoonish in a "that's not really how it was" sort of way, or were they "stereotypically correct" in conveying the underlying essense of "the peculiar institution"?  

    Is it your intention to suggest that the movie somehow "whitewashes" slavery?

    Fake Left, Drive Right . . . not my idea of a Democrat . . .
