Roots: The Complete Miniseries. Season 1. () IMDb 18+. His name was Kunta Kinte. Kidnapped from Africa and enslaved in America, he refused to accept his slave name of Toby. Heirs kept his heroic defiance alive, whispering his name Kunta Kinte. A saga of African-American life, based on Alex Haley's family history. Kunta Kinte is abducted from his African village, sold into slavery, and taken to America. He makes several escape attempts until he is finally caught and maimed. He marries Bell, his plantation's cook, and they have a daughter, Kizzy, who is eventually sold away from them. Roots tells the story of Kunta Kinte —a young man taken from the Gambia when he was seventeen and sold as a slave—and seven generations of his descendants in the United States. Kunta, a Mandinka living by the River Gambia, has a difficult but free childhood in his village, Jufureh. With Herbert Cavalier Jr., Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Malachi Kirby, Forest Whitaker. An adaptation of Alex Haley's "Roots", chronicling the history of an African man sold to slavery in America, and his descendants. Parents need to know that Roots is the classic miniseries based on the best-selling book by Alex Haley, who spent 13 years tracing his genealogy back to In graphic and heartrending detail, the miniseries shows the brutality and misery of slavery, from people who were kidnapped from their villages in Africa to the slave auctions that separated families to the degrading conditions on plantations.
I didn't know she had leukemia during the days I watched her on Trapper John. There were some episodes where she seemed older than her years, though always beautiful.
In Roots she manages to capture and portray an inner beauty and let it shine through her bondage. Most of the white actors were well cast, Duncan aside.
I didn't realize how busy Lloyd Bridges was doing so many mini-series. He makes you hate him here, so he did his job. Ed Asner had a very poignant remark about no one really being free.
It was that he felt he was becoming a slave to his job. Please do not think I am comparing the miseries of forced slavery to a large scheme of celestial bondage, but it was pointed out in this film, that at the end of the war, freedom simply meant going from slavery into some other forced form of servitude.
I'm retired, yet I often feel bound to government restrictions and the things I am forced to do routinely to simply maintain my retirement.
The African-Americans added to Asner's moment by later saying that when someone died, the smile on his face meant he was finally free.
When Roots came out I remember the cries of many saying, "We now have our history! About five years ago, when my daughter married a man of color, he made her watch Roots.
She asked me what I thought of him doing that. My response was that she needed to look at all things objectively, and know that most of life is a shade of gray.
I also mentioned that had I been the same city, I would have liked to have viewed it with them. Now I can at least share my thoughts and hear my son-in-law's thoughts as well.
My biggest complaint is that the DVD is already out of print. One of the greatest mini-series ever made and I have to pay scalpers' fees for a used copy?
I borrowed my copy from the library Please, someone! This movie along with North and South should be required viewing for all people.
For the African-Americans, this movie should be made available forever, so that it does not simply fade into folk and family lore the way that Kunta-Kinte did - with only bits and pieces remaining.
