Whatever direction you lean in politics and theology, this movie is bound to make you uncomfortable. Eight-year-old girls take up guns. The book of Galatians is used to justify an ambush. The brutality of rape is dealt with, multiple times. Slavery, as many times as we’ve seen it on film, is gut wrenching in a fresh way. And protagonist Newton Knight (portrayed by Matthew McConaughey) constantly dances on the line between killing in self defense and outright revenge and murder, all while citing God and the Bible for his actions.
