About the movie
In 1839, African captives broke free of their shackles to take control of the Spanish slave ship La Amistad. But on reaching America, they were put on trial for piracy and murder. Steven Spielberg's absorbing account of this thorny episode from US history stars Matthew McConaughey and Morgan Freeman as abolitionist lawyers and Anthony Hopkins as ex-president John Quincey Adams. But it's Djimon Hounsou who catches the eye in his breakthrough role as the leader of the slave revolt.
