It’s yet more proof that Smith is still a bona fide Movie Star, and no amount of Hollywood pearl-clutching can really change that.

What others think

This is a strong, fierce, heartfelt movie.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
Smith is a huge performer and it’s rare to be able to singularly carry a film like this.
David Jenkins Little White Lies
Emancipation can’t avoid the well-trodden hallmarks of slavery stories, nor offer a particularly fresh perspective on them.
