Apple TV+ historical action thriller directed by Antoine Fuqua. Inspired by a true story, Emancipation (2022) centers on runaway slave, Peter (Will Smith), who forges through the swamps of Louisiana on a tortuous journey to escape plantation owners that nearly killed him, to reunite with his family.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Peter: Give thanks to God. The Lord is with us. What can a mere man do to me?
Son: [as Peter is being taken] Papa!
Peter: I will come back to you!
Fassel: You walk the earth because I let you. I’m your God now.
Peter: I heard it myself. Slaves are free.
Gordon: Says who?
Peter: We must get to Baton Rouge. Five days through the swamp. Lincoln’s army is there.
Gordon: There are many ways to die in a swamp.
Peter: There are many ways to die here.
Peter: I will not be afraid. What can a mere man do to me?
Man: Follow the sound of Lincoln’s cannons.
Peter: I must get to my family.
Peter: My family is with me forever.
Daughter: [referring to Peter] What if he don’t come back?
Dodienne: Your papa is going to be back. Do not ever stop believing that.
Fassel: He’s persistent. Running. Hiding. Surviving.
Peter: I fight them. They beat me. They whip me. They break the bones in my body more times than I can count. But they never, never break me.
Peter: I will look in triumph at my enemies.
