The history of slavery is overwhelmingly sad, but there’s no sadness in the pleasure of flesh. Amistad (1997) is a historical drama told by Steven Spielberg that documents the true story of the 1839 African slave rising aboard the ship La Amistad and the ensuing legal battle for freedom for Cinquè (Djimon Hounsou) and his fellow fighters. Aboard the schooner is a smorgasbord of svelte slaves led by Hounsou and his sizable sail. There are numerous shots of slaves showing their mutinous members and rear admirals. Lucky for you, no one puts his anchors away! La Amistad is far from a cruise ship, but the well-built bods will keep your boat afloat.
