Upcoming movie, "12 Years a Slave," review and trailer at "Slate"

There is a new movie coming out, "12 Years a Slave." The link to the review and a trailer is at this link:


From the blog posting at Slate:
The film tells the story of Solomon Northup, who was born a free man in the North,worked as a carpenter and violinist to support his wife and three children, and was kidnapped and sold into chains in Louisiana. He was eventually able to get word of his illegal enslavement up to his family, and when he was free again he wrote a bestselling slave narrative about his experience, called 12 Years a Slave.
