Steve McQueen’s masterpiece ‘12 Years a Slave’ stars Chiwetel Ejiofor in a searing performance.
Not since "City of God" have I experienced a movie that moved me the way "12 Years a Slave" moved me. I openly sobbed, but not out fear or anger. I cried because I was filled with so much pride in how far African Americans have come in this country. As I watched the captives pray during certain scenes, I realized that my life is a result of their prayers. I am even more determined to make my ancestors proud. A must see for all cultures.
