12 Years a Slave (2013)

Based on an incredible true story of one man's fight for survival and freedom. In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel 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 (Brad Pitt) forever alters his life. More »

    @narrator No doubt. And yeah, that's one thing I hate about this site. I wish there were some way to prevent people from rating a film until it's release.

    @thedude-abides Hell of a cast. Pitt, Fassbender, C*mberbatch, Ejiofor, Dano, Giamatti, and now Wallis. Damn, that's good. What bothers me, however, is that some douche has already rated the damn thing 0 stars.

    @narrator Just learned that Quvenzhane Wallis is in this too! As if the cast already wasn't good enough...
