This holiday season if you plan on seeing 12 Years a Slave, be warned that you should be mentally prepared for an extremely intense movie experience. Without a moment to break, the film flows through gut-wrenching, heart-tugging moments that leave you constantly on edge and tense. The topic of slavery is looked at from a new perspective as the main character starts off a free man living in the North and is soon sold off into slavery. Audiences quickly become emotionally invested into his unbelievable journey and we find ourselves desperately rooting for this character to succeed. And, to top it off, a special guest appearance is made by none other than Brad Pitt, who provides the one, much needed bright spot of the film. 12 Years a Slave will undoubtedly get acknowledged for Best Picture as it is an extremely significant film that not only addresses an important time period in American history but also helps bring perspective to our current everyday lives.
