PRLog - Feb. 6, 2014 - Chicago, IL -  The Black Online News Network gives “12 Years as a Slave” five stars.  During the pre-Civil War years in the United States, Solomon Northup (played by Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty from a malevolent slave owner portrayed by Michael Fassbender, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his memorable odyssey, Solomon’s chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt) altered his life forever.

    “12 Years as a Slave,” directed by Steve McQueen and written by John Ridley, was released in the United States on October 18, 2013. The cast, in addition to Ejiofor, Fassbender and Pitt, features Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Dano, Paul Giamatti, Lupita Nyong’o, Sarah Paulson and Alfre Woodard. Principal photography took place in New Orleans, Louisiana.

    The film has received widespread critical acclaim. The performance of Chiwetel Ejiofor as Solomon Northrup has been applauded as an exceptional example of a man demonstrating determination to retain the essence of his humanity and survive as his world blows up around him, an understated but powerful effort.
