Movie Summary


Oprah Winfrey and Danny Glover star in "Beloved" - a movie based on Toni Morrison's
Pulitzer Prize winning book.

Sethe (Oprah Winfrey) is a former slave now living near Cincinnati with her daughter Denver (Kimberly Elise).
Paul D (Danny Glover) is an old friend who used to be on the same plantation as Sethe years ago.

After Paul re-enters Sethe's life, Sethe starts having terrible and frightening flashbacks about her older dead
daughter, her grandmother and other family members that seem to have mysteriously disappeared from her life.
Also, an obviously abused young woman (Thandie Newton) turns up at Sethe's house and gets nursed back to health
by Sethe's daughter. The young woman is given the name "Beloved."
