12 years a slave

’12 Years A Slave’ in my opinion one of the most moving, powerful, gut wrenching, movies to hit the big screen in a long time.

Steve McQueen’s slavery film, based on Solomon Northup’s 1853 memoir, has been hailed as a landmark corrective to the movie industry’s long omission of slavery stories and years of whiter tales like 1940 best-picture winner “Gone With the Wind.”
