12 Years a Slave
Drama • R • 2013 • 2 hr 14 min
Aabsolute must see. Amazing performance in a film that captures the insanity and horrors of slavery. Scarily immersive and educational.
Heartbreaking. I never want to see it again
Pretty much what you would expect it to be, but still deserved Best Picture.
A remarkable achievement in film that adapts the words of a real man, and in doing so, endows the story with a heart and truth unrivaled.
Emotionally charged; expect to be changed. Thought-provoking movie that presents the realities of slavery and racism in engaging style.
Brilliant historical drama movie, superb performances in this heartbreaking story. Powerful cinema and must see
An incredible movie but unfortunately it falls into the white savour trope
One of the better movies that deals with such a dark and difficult topic. Lupita definitely deserved the Oscar, but so did Chiwetel Ejiofor
Movie seems shorter than it is. Hopelessness meets hope.
That sorrowed me in every cell of my body. There has been so so much horror in the world.
