12 Years A Slave – 2013 Film

The most recent winner of the Best Picture Award at the Oscars, 12 Years A Slave is a movie that absolutely everybody should see. Sure, it’s not exactly easy to watch, but it is the most convincing portrayal of the ugliness of slavery in America ever committed to film. Benedict Cumberbatch has a supporting role as a slave owner who is strangely nice to his slaves. It’s interesting to see the juxtaposition of a deeply religious man who thinks it’s okay to keep people as slaves, and yet treats them like people.
