Official Trailer: ’12 Years a Slave’

12 YEARS A SLAVE is based on an incredible true story of one man’s fight for survival and freedom. In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty (personified by a malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender) as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon’s chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt) forever alters his life.

    Disinfo flogging Hollywood movies? (pun intended)

    The music alone made me feel queasy, let alone all of the hackneyed themes and platitudinal dialogue.

    I’ve been wondering what it’s going to be like.

    Is there a version with an alernative ending to be shown in Florida?

    You ever wonder why the US has such a racial divide? What would it have been like to have been an escaped slave traveling the underground railroad and standing in New York and asking your white “conductors” why you had to keep running to Canada and can’t just stay in New York. They wouldn’t even have to say anything because the look on their face would say everything. The North was as hostile to blacks as the South.
