The extraordinary true story of Solomon Northup

12 YEARS A SLAVE tells the 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, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty from a hateful slave owner (Michael Fassbender), Solomon struggles not only to stay alive but to retain his dignity in his quest to be reunited with his family.

"The cumulative emotional effect is devastating: the final scenes are as angry, as memorable, as overwhelming as anything modern cinema has to offer." TimeOut

"A brutally powerful and emotionally devastating film that takes great pains to rip any lingering vestiges of romanticism from America's most shameful institution." New York Post
