12 Years a Slave

12 years a slaveOnly one film really has me wanting to see it this week, even though I’m not going to be able to.

12 Years a Slave is the story of Solomon Northup, a free man who was kidnapped and forced to work on a New Orleans plantation as a slave in the 19th century. It’s directed by Steve McQueen, who has previously directed Hunger and Shame, so I expect good things. Reviews for it so far have been great. The only issue is that this is a limited release. You can find out if it’s playing near you by going here. But, it’s probably going to take some time to make its way around the country.
