Wow! This looks absolutely amazing. Clearly from the trailer, this looks like it’s going to be a serious Oscar contender. It’s the new film by Steve McQueen, the guy who made the excellent movie SHAME with Michael Fassbender. This film is about a free black man living in New York in the 1800’s, who is then kidnapped and sold into slavery. It stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, and you might as well hand him the Oscar now. He looks incredible. I’ve always been a fan of his, so I’m glad he’s getting a role that will showcase his talents. It also co-stars Fassbender, Paul Giamatti, Paul Dano and Brad Pitt. I was so moved by the trailer that I even started to cry. I am very much looking forward to this film when it opens in October.
