From acclaimed director Steve McQueen comes this “deeply evocative and brilliantly acted” film (Claudia Puig, USA Today) based on the true story of Solomon Northup.nnIt is 1841, and Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor in a gripping performance), an accomplished, free citizen of New York, is kidnapped and sold into slavery.
Stripped of his identity and deprived of all dignity, Northup is ultimately purchased by ruthless plantation owner Edwin Epps (Michael Fassbender) and must find the strength within to survive.
Filled with powerful performances by an astonishing cast that includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Brad Pitt and newcomer Lupita Nyong’o, 12 Years A Slave is both an unflinching account of slavery in American history and a celebration of the indomitable power of hope.nnOwn it on Blu-ray: fox.co/12YearsASlavennSUBSCRIBE: bit.ly/FOXSubscribennAbout 20th Century FOX:nnOfficial YouTube Channel for 20th Century Fox Movies.
