Charlotte's Film Club: 12 Years a Slave

Charlotte set the theme of 'English/Irish Actors' yesterday, with her next Film Club choice being 2013's '12 Years a Slave', featuring Michael Fassbender.

Based upon the life of Solomon Northrup, in the years before the Civil War, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is kidnapped and sold into slavery in the South. Subjected to the cruelty of one malevolent owner (Michael Fassbender), he struggles continually to survive and maintain some of his dignity. 

The film won three oscars for 'Best Picture', 'Best Adapted Screenplay' and 'Best Supporting Actress' for Lupita Nyong'o.
