This behind-the-scenes look at the critically acclaimed dramatic movie 12 Years a Slave focuses on the location shooting and costumes and features director Steve McQueen discussing how his crew created the look of plantation life. Now playing in theaters, 12 Years a Slave (a potential Oscar nominee) stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Dano, Garret Dillahunt, Paul Giamatti, and Brad Pitt.
The Plot:
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 (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 (Pitt) forever alters his life.
