This weekend, I saw 12 Years A Slave, which seemed particularly appropriate as the world mourns the death of Nelson Mandel.

Anyway, it's not a movie for those who dislike watching violence, beatings in the name of one's beliefs. It certainly does not pull any punches about the hellishness of slavery. Chiwetel Ejiofor as Solomon/Platt is excellent and I'm sure will up for an Oscar this year,. I also thought Lupita Nyang'o as the young housemaid and Michael Fassbender as Epps, the slavemaster were good. Brad Pitt also plays a minor role. The cinematography is particularly appropriate and effective in setting the scenes. Not an easy movie to watch, but one I would recommend.
