12 YEARS A SLAVE
Director: Steve McQueen
Release date: 24 January 2014 (UK)
Where we saw it: London Film Festival, Oct 18th
A few words: It’s not an easy watch. It’s cruel, it’s violent and it will shock you. But underneath the surface there’s the glimmer of hope and the inspiring strength of human spirit. It’s a touching story of survival with beautiful cinematography and one of the strongest casts we’ve ever seen.
A very important movie that everyone should see.
Other thoughts: Benedict with a southern accent is good for one’s soul.
