Based on a true story, this is by far the best movie I have seen this year. It tells the story of Solomon Northup, who is abducted and sold into slavery. It shows how terrible things were in the past, and you can’t help but feel that despite all the negativity that surrounds modern times, we truly have progressed for the positive. To go from what happened in this movie, to an era where Barack Obama is the president of the United States of America is an amazing achievement.
Yes, a great movie of a true story. Slavery is out in this country except for our animal friends. When will human animals realize that others are sentient and wonderful beings not to be slaughtered and eaten? That they are not property as the slaves were until Abe Lincoln chaged that. I am an old guy, but still hope and pray for that day.
