12 Years a Slave

12 Years a Slave(2013)

A brutal and harsh chronicle of one of the darkest stains of this country's past, 12 Years a Slave tells a (true) story that 's horrifying and beautiful all at once. Ejiofor as the free man turned slave gives an outstanding performance, he has a very expressive face. McQueen does a nice job of directing...he puts Tarantino to shame. (11-2-13)
