Just two weeks after opening in limited release, 12 Years A Slave has reached us.
Possibly the most talked about Oscar contender of the year, British Director Steve McQueen’s newest offering does nothing to diminish his reputation for exceptional filmmaking. You may recall his last film, Shame, with Michael Fassbender and Carrie Muligan, which enjoyed similarly intense media and popular attention. If you’re still in doubt, take note: 12 Years broke into the top 10 films nationwide last week, hitting 8th despite showing at a meager 123 theaters.
Synopsis: “In the antebellum United States, Solomon Northup, a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery.” Rated R, this biographical drama offers an unflinching look at the brutality of American slavery.
Check out the trailer and some additional coverage (below).
12 Years A Slave Opens Friday only at: the Spectrum 8 in Albany, Regal 13 Colonie Center, and Bowtie Cinemas in Schenectady. The spectrum appears to have allotted two screens, with 7 showings a day. Showtimes & Tickets
