Worth Watching Posted by: from: on Pictorially, 12 Years a Slave is a reminder of one of the most shameful aspects of American History. As such, the film reminds viewers that humans have the capacity for evil. At the same time, Northrup's character demonstrates a fighting spirit of one who overcomes that should be celebrated by all. The movie is worth watching and merited Best Picture.

Great Part of History Posted by: from: on This film was very intriguing and heartfelt. It is so sad to know what others have gone through because of the evil hearts of mankind. The story had a happy ending as he made it back home to his family. Love conquers all.

To own this movie is a must! Posted by: from: Rochester, NY on It does not matter what your race or ethnicity is, this movie will (or should) move you. I first viewed in theater, but felt compelled to own it. This is the true story of Solomon Northrup's ordeal and both producer, director, writers and actors hit the nail on it's proverbial head. The emotional aspect comes from witnessing so many varieties of cruelty towards another human, whether it was the violence of whip or kidnapping. It encompassed everything I was ever taught about slavery and all of the things I was NOT taught about slavery. It came out for sale on 3/4/14. I went to Best Buy at 5pm that day and there were 4 copies left. by the time I made it to the line, there were none.

Lived up to Critical Acclaim Posted by: from: Glasgow, Kentucky on 12 Years a Slave portrays the vicious hell slavery was. Legally labeling fellow humans as "beasts" and mercilessly abusing them at will was shockingly normal. Sarah Paulson was especially chilling as the jealous wife. I was appalled at Paul Giamatti's corrupt evil trafficker. Solomon Northup's memoir was brought to life without sparing any injustice. Film buffs now have a new standard reference for realism of that era's common atrocities. Very hard but critical to watch. 12 Years a Slave was voted 2014 Best Picture. Remove the Southern accents & introduce a Mediterranean setting and you could easily tell the same type of story in ancient Rome or Sparta. But this horror story is American, all too true, and not a unique story. What is unique is Solomon's education & dedication in committing his survival to a shocking memoir. Solomon's story became an eyewitness to what has become a lost, now recaptured history. 12 Years a Slave demonstrates the power of film. Most would not think to seek a slave's memoir as compelling drama in the written word. On screen, indignity, humiliation, and evil become impossible to ignore. Lupita N'Yongo was perfectly cast as the Master's favorite. Under slavery, something as mundane as soap can change lives like a head-on collision. 12 Years a Slave is a remarkable cinematic achievement. I hope one day becomes a staple easy reference for discussing humans' inhumanity as Huckleberry Finn is now. Daniel J. Delph, Glasgow, Kentucky

12 years a slave Posted by: from: New York, NY on This gripping drama set during the time of slavery is the tale of Solomon Northup, a free man who is drugged and sold into slavery and thought dead/lost for twelve years. POWERFUL performances from Chitewel Ejiofor as Solomon Northup, Lupita Nyong'o (who took home the academy award for best supporting actress) as Patsey along with Michael Fassbender, Benedict Cumberbatch, Sarah Paulson and Paul Dano
