12 Years a Slave

Briefly: In advance of any film festival debut, Fox Searchlight has acquired and announced a release date for Steve McQueen's Twelve Years a Slave, starring Chiwetel Ejiofor (Serenity, Kinky Boots, Children of Men, American Gangster, Salt) as Solomon Northup, a man living in New York during the mid-1800s who is kidnapped and sold into slavery in the deep south. The film has an incredible ensemble cast, with Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Beasts nom Quvenzhané Wallis, Dwight Henry, Paul Giamatti, Sarah Paulson, Michael K. Williams and Marcus Lyle Brown. They've scheduled it for a release on December 27th, 2013, which bodes well for an awards push after very likely many film festival premieres.

Django Unchained was not a proper look on slavery. Hoping this will be the REAL DEAL.

What a cast! Plus, this director is phenomenal. Shame and Hunger especially are both incredible movies that feature earth-shattering performances. Hunger has the best extended, one-take conversation I've ever experienced in a film. One of the best movies I will ever see.

Yaaaaaay! Look out for nine year old Stom Reid playing the role of Emily in this amazing film. Congrats to Mr McQueen!
