Was there still slavery in America, circa 1930? Ask Danish director Lars von Trier and his answer is "Yes!" In "Manderlay" (2005), von Trier follows "Dogville" with part two of his "American trilogy," which focuses on the horrific legacy of slavery. BryceDallas Howard plays Grace and Willem Dafoe plays her gangster father. Upon arriving on the run to hideout at a Southern plantation called Manderlay, Grace is shocked to see that no one there knows that slavery has been abolished. With a good heart and pure intentions, Grace tries to emancipate the slaves. But strangely everyone - from the wise Wilhelm, played by Danny Glover, to the stubborn Thomas - is content to live a life of subservience in this telling drama.
