'12 Years a Slave' (10/18)
Jaap Buitendijk

Based on the 1853 autobiography of Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), 12 Years a Slave concerns a free black man who was kidnapped in D.C. in 1841 and sold to a Louisiana slave master (Michael Fassbender) to work the plantations. Director Steve McQueen has never run from controversy (see Hunger and Shame), so expect gloves off and emotions rubbed raw.
