Part of the MLK Celebration

This courageous new film takes an unflinching close-up look at a subject that has rarely, if ever, been confronted with such unvarnished directness in American cinema. It is based on the memoir of freeman Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), who was abducted in Washington, D.C. in 1841 and ultimately delivered to a cruel and mentally unbalanced cotton grower (Michael Fassbender), a figure of both horror and pathos who comes to embody the true savagery—and insanity—of slavery. D: Steve McQueen, UK, 2013, 134m
