Must-See: Oprah Winfrey & Thandie Newton Reunite 20 Years After ‘Beloved’

Published: Tuesday 6th Jun 2017 by David

In 1998 Oprah Winfrey led the film adaptation of Toni Morrison‘s horror ‘Beloved’.

In it, with support from Kimberly Elise and Thandie Newton, Winfrey told the tale of an enslaved African woman who- after escaping the horrific plantation she was enslaved in- murders her baby to stop the child from being enslaved when she is close to being captured.

This year, Winfrey and Newton reunited for ‘Actors on Actors’ to discuss the craft of acting, their history and their respective careers.

Watch below…

In the troubled years following the Civil War, the spirit of a murdered child haunts the Ohio home of a former slave. This angry, destructive ghost breaks mirrors, leaves its fingerprints in cake icing, and generally makes life difficult for Sethe and her family; nevertheless, the woman finds the haunting oddly comforting for the spirit is that of her own dead baby, never named, thought of only as Beloved.
