12 Years a Slave

12 Years a Slave (2013)

Genre: Biography, Drama, History

This is a true story of Solomon Northup who was forced to be a slave during the 19th century. I can’t deny this is a great film that explores the terrible truths that Soloman and many others had to deal with. The beginning of the film throws you straight into the action and starting off with a feeling of something bad straight away. This feeling gets worse at certain points which works for this film and some scenes (like the almost hanging scene) drag on far longer than needed. This creates an awesome film technique that makes the scenes almost uncomfortable to watch which makes your more empathetic to Solomon’s plight. There is a great cast within this film (Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender and Benedict Cumberbatch) and act brilliantly thought the work of Lupita Nyong’o and Chiwetel Ejiofor were stunning πŸ˜€ ! The ending sequence was the best part and made the film complete. πŸ™‚ Β This is a film that is worth a watch even just once πŸ™‚ . Enjoy πŸ˜€

I give this film 4 Stars out of 5!
