About the Film
12 Years A Slave is based on an incredible true story of one man's fight for survival and freedom. In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty (personified by a malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender) as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon’s chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt) forever alters his life.
Don't believe the hype, this film is hopeless. Watch 'Roots' if you want to know about slavery. Slow boring film, watch and see for yourself!
Yet again an overhyped film (the last one I saw was Gravity). Plot was weak and the characters lacked depth. Oijofor's performance was overrated.
