Nate Parker's 'Birth of a Nation' Gets Standing Ovation at TIFF!
Nate Parker flashes a smile while attending the premiere of his movie The Birth of a Nation held during the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival on Friday night (September 9) at the Winter Garden Theatre in Toronto, Canada.
The 36-year-old actor/writer/director was joined at the event by co-stars Gabrielle Union, Aja Naomi King, Armie Hammer (with pregnant wife Elizabeth), Colman Domingo, and Penelope Ann Miller, among others.
The movie received a standing ovation and a warm reception from the audience despite all of the controversy surrounding the film due to Nate‘s resurfaced rape trial.
