12 Years a Slave

Briefly: If you somehow missed the big news, Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave just won Best Picture at the 86th Academy Awards this past weekend. As expected, Fox Searchlight is banking on all the awards buzz (since it also won at the BAFTAs, the Indie Spirits, and Golden Globes) and re-releasing the film in theaters this weekend. EW.com (via The Film Stage) reports that 12 Years a Slave will be re-released in over 1,000 theaters this weekend, likely being pushed as the Best Picture winner. The film has already made $50 million at the box office and is out on DVD/Blu-ray, but it still worth seeing in theaters. In addition to Best Picture, actress Lupita Nyong'o won Best Supporting Actress, and I was rooting for Chiwetel Ejiofor, too.

Check your local listings to see if 12 Years a Slave is playing in a theater near you. In total, Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave took home three Oscars, from Best Picture to Best Adapted Screenplay to Best Supporting Actress. It first opened in limited release on November 8th, 2013 last fall. For more info: foxsearchlight.com

I never had the opportunity to see this movie (or there were others I had more of interest to see at the same time) but now, with all the hype this movie has received including its Academy Awards winning, its looks of interest. Can anybody give a solid review on it (and I'm open to spoilers, long as it doesn't give too much away)?

If you liked Lincoln then you will like this. Slow, historical drama with top notch performances and a lot of the N word.

Yiiis. I am kind of scared to watch it again, but it deserves the watch.
