12 Years a Slave

The film manages to grab you on a deep emotional level. I felt like I was myself loosing my freedom to become a slave.

Part of why the film works so well is the impeccable acting of Chiwetel Ejiofor, who is able to show with quiet facial expression how awful one feels losing what we today take for granted: freedom. The film shows some graphic terror that in no way is gratuitous. It helps make the point how brutal slavery at times was.
