Will Smith is back! Six months after the slap in the face at the Oscars, the actor is already back in force with a new feature film, ” Emancipation ”, which will be released soon on Apple TV+. The streaming service unveiled a first trailer for the filmbut also a release date.
Inspired by a true story
In “Emancipation”, Will Smith plays Peter, a slave who decides to run away after being beaten up by a foreman. Inspired by real events, the story takes place in 1863, in the middle of the Civil War. Peter fled to the North to join the Union Army which faced Confederate troops. The wounds inflicted by his former foreman will serve as a symbol to fight slavery and denounce the atrocities committed in the southern states. The film thus tells a fight for freedom, with characters who do not intend to let go.
