12 Year Slave : Great Movie

With nine Oscar nominations, 12 Years a Slave is the favorite in the race for golden statuettes. The latest installment of Steve McQueen says, 20 years after Gordon Parks in the TV movie Half Slave Half Free, the true fate of Solomon Northrup, a free man enslaved.

The director (British) Hunger and Shame tackles a sensitive subject, slavery, which has not always been good or even much treated film. Steve McQueen also remains one of the few black filmmakers (with Gordon Parks so) to have addressed this difficult issue.
