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.

FYI: Gabrielle is wearing a Boss dress and sandals with jewelry by Tiffany & Co. Aja is wearing an Emanuel Ungaro dress with Jerome C. Rousseau sandals. Armie is wearing a Salvatore Ferragamo blazer, pants, shirt, and tie.

    HW doesn’t have a problem with supporting rapists etc. because it’s all about the $$.

    It’s because he’s Black, PERIOD. A White man’s career would be over RIGHT NOW, and this movie – no matter how great – would be consigned to Amazon Prime, not receiving ovations at film festivals.

    So a room filled with people that have been known to support other rapists in the business are clapping for a slavery movie.. that doesn’t impress me at all. People in the public will always view this sick basterd for what he truly is.

    Standing ovation? The place was papered with people associated with the film and lots of flunkies from Fox Searchlight. This showing was all about PR and controlling the narrative. TIFF crowds are polite and half the balcony left before the Q & A. Yeah, the film was that good. Sorry, don’t buy the hype that everything is okay from Fox. Nate Parker’s going to get hardball questions thrown at him in situations that aren’t so controlled real soon (you know, from people not interested in sucking up to Fox). He’s a dumb guy, so he’s in big, big trouble.

    Are you kidding??? People are still discussing those men and the things they’ve done. They will never be free of their past. And rightfully so. Parker IS at an advantage. Denying this by retorting with cursing, rage, and rehearsed PC rhetoric doesn’t change that.
