12 Years A Slave: Don’t take our word for it, take the Golden Globes and Oscar nominations this film has under its belt as the proof.

From acclaimed director Steve McQueen (Shame, Hunger) comes this moving film based on a true story. In the pre-Civil War United States, free citizen Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor) is abducted and sold into slavery. Through years living as a slave to a vicious plantation owner (Michael Fassbender), Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. It’s only after a chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist that he finds hope to change his life.
