12 Years a Slave

  • What it's about: A free black man from the North (Chiwetel Ejiofor) is abducted and sold into slavery in pre-Civil War America. The movie tells the tale of the time during his enslavement, and the various owners he encounters.
  • Why we're interested: I know this movie sounds like a bummer, but it's directed by Steve McQueen (Shame) and stars Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Sarah Paulson, Paul Giamatti, and Alfre Woodard. It's gotta be good.
  • When it opens: Oct. 18
  • Watch the trailer for 12 Years a Slave.
