12 Years a Slave
In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup, a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty at the hands of a malevolent slave owner, 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 will forever alter his life.
Based on a true story, this thought provoking movie will no doubt spur a lot of great conversation.
We will be going to see the 6:50 showing of this movie at Sundance. If you are interested in dinner before the show, we will meet at Flat Top Grill at 5:15, or as soon as you can. If you are not doing dinner, meet us in the lobby area at Sundance at 6:35, and we will select seats together and head in to see the 6:50 show. Please make every effort to be on time for dinner, as our time will be a little tight.
Hope to see you there!
