In the antebellum United States, Solomon Northup, a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. This movie is absolutely gripping and is an amazing story that treads some rough waters. Jon gives us his thoughts on 12 Years A Slave and why it wasn’t his favorite movie of the year, despite it still being really good. 12 Years A Slave is directed by Steve McQueen and stars Chiwtel Ejiofor, Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Fassbender, Lupita Nyongo, and Brad Pitt.
