It is 1841, and Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor in a gripping performance), an accomplished, free citizen of New York, is kidnapped and sold into slavery. Stripped of his identity and deprived of all dignity, Northup is ultimately purchased by ruthless plantation owner Edwin Epps (Michael Fassbender) and must find the strength within to survive. Filled with powerful performances by an astonishing cast that includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Brad Pitt and newcomer Lupita Nyong’o, 12 YEARS A SLAVE is both an unflinching account of slavery in American history and a celebration of the indomitable power of hope.
This is not the kind of movie I usually watch but this one really sounded interesting so I just had to watch and review.
This movie was ok..It was well writen and the acting was fantastic but this isn't the kind of movie I usually watch so I was out of my comfort zone. I am glad I watched it though but it wouldn't be something I will be watching again because it just isn't the kind of movie I watch and I did have a hard time to keep watching.
I know a few people who would love this one but like I said it just wasn't for me. I am glad I watched it because at least now I know what some of my friends are talking about it and I can say yes I have watched it .
I give this 3 out 5
