It is a brave piece that takes the uneasy subject and creates a superb piece of cinema. It is among the very best films of 2013.

Absorbing and comprehensively thought-provoking, 12 Years A Slave is one of the most hostile yet insightful movie-going experiences you will realize with glaring appreciation this year or any other year at the movies.
