ABOUT 12 YEARS A SLAVE:

12 YEARS A SLAVE is based on an incredible true story of one
man’s fight for survival and freedom.  In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is
abducted and sold into slavery.  Facing cruelty (personified by a
malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender), as well as unexpected
kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his
dignity.  In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon’s
chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt) will forever alter his
life.  The film opens in limited release on October 18, 2013.
