12 YEARS A SLAVE @ Landmark, Sunday, 10/20, 7:10 PM

TICKETS ARE ALREADY AVAILABLE FOR THIS SCREENING!

Synopsis:

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.

    The most powerful indictment of slavery I've ever seen. It completely avoids Simon Legree stereotypes, and reveals the willful, self-deceptive corruption that drove the slaveowners to torture and abuse the people that they presumed were their property, instead of human beings like themselves. Viscerally horrifying, complex, deeply disturbing, and powered by great performances by all involved, especially Lupita Nyong’o, who gives an incredible, nuanced, and heart-wrenching performance as Patsy.

      Question: Were the 2 men who offered him out of town gig the villains who sold Solomon as a slave?

      I think that's ambiguous. What we see is all that Solomon remembers, and all he remembers is the kindness that they showed when they put him to bed. I don't think it's really clear who put the chains on… unless I'm wrong… :-)
