Rating: 4.6/5 Stars
Amazing, Inspiring, Raw. Chiwetel Ejiofor gives the performance of his life as Solomon Northup. Solomon’s story alone is real enough, but when we re-live it through Steve McQueen‘s lens it is nearly unbearable to see so much pain in such a short period of time. Don’t let me frighten you though, this is a film that people will will talk about for ages. This is the type of film that must be shared, so that everyone has the chance to see the film or hear about Solomon’s story at least once. Don’t expect to see another movie like 12 Years a Slave in your lifetime.
