In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup, a free black man living in upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery.

"It speaks to the courage and resilience of one man, the savagery of many, and the potential, for both good and for ill, in us all."
- Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Intense, unflinching, bold in its simplicity and radical in its use of image, sound and staging, 12 Years a Slave in many ways is the defining epic so many have longed for to examine — if not cauterize — America’s primal wound."
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Movie audiences have never been presented with anything quite like the intertwined beauty and savagery of 12 Years a Slave."
- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"Ejiofor’s tightly clenched conviction perfectly embodies hope and righteousness against all odds. He gives the best performance of his career to date, and what’s more, he gives “Slave” its bruised, beating heart with every scene."
