12 Years A Slave | dir. Steve McQueen

The long-awaited trailer for artist and filmmaker Steve McQueen’s third feature is finally here.  12 Years A Slave is the story of Solomon Northup who was born free, and who lived with his wife and children in New York, working as a carpenter and violinist to support them. In 1841 he was kidnapped and sold into slavery in Louisiana, spending long years in bondage until he was able to get word to his family in the North. His account of his time in chains -  12 Years a Slave - became a bestseller. 

So what sets 12 Years apart from the handful of “slavery films" released in the US? (1) it’s one of the few films based on an actual slave narrative (2) the incredible cast (below) (2) McQueen’s previous films have been nuanced and meticulously shot treatments of difficult subjects (so probably no Django/Amistad-style melodrama then) (3) it’s set to be one of the very few films about slavery written and directed by a black filmmaker (4) brilliant actor Chiwetel Ejiofor in a leading role!

Due for release on 27 December 2013, the film boasts a star-studded cast with Chiwetel Ejiofor, Lupita Nyong’o, Alfre Woodard, Brad Pitt, Quvenzhané Wallis, Michael Fassbender, Michael K Williams, Adepero Oduye, Paul Giamatti and Benedict Cumberbatch.

That's a great cast. I love Alfre Woodard and think Chiwetel Ejiofor is a fab Actor(loved him in Serenity and Kinky Boots)
