12 Years a Slave. Chiwetel Ejiofor. Brad Pitt. Michael Fassbender. Benedict Cumberbatch.

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 [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.
