To be a free man and a man with a trade was a lot to be proud of for a black man in 19th-century America. Solomon Northup was such a man. Then, one fateful day, his good life and all his dreams came to a crashing halt. Solomon Northup was kidnapped and carried off into slavery to serve on plantations in the South. For 12 long years he experienced the cruelty and subjugation that was slavery. Under any circumstances, it's a harrowing story. Under most circumstances, it would be a story worth telling. Under these circumstances, it is a story that needs to be told. For the story of Solomon Northup is a true story. Adapted by Lou Potter and Samm-Art Williams from Solomon Northup's memoir Twelve Years a Slave.

It could have been a good film, the story plot is good, the actors were good. However, I thought the directing was poor.
