12 Years a Slave

12 Years a Slave ticketstubYou guys, this movie... Wow. First, though, the qualifier, this movie is pretty much just a series of horrific examples of man's inhumanity to man. Normally I would see myself sobbing throughout a movie like this, but I think the unbelievable intensity and horror of everything I saw scared the tears away. So, fair warning. Also, there's a fair bit of nudity, not sure if you want to bring the kids. With all that said, it's an incredible film filled with unbelievable performances from everyone. I won't say it's a must-see, because it definitely isn't everyone's cup of tea, but if you think you'd get something out of it, don't hesitate to check it out.
