When tasked with re-creating a real life story, directors must keep the foundation of the story while adding just the right touch of film magic in order to create something special. When taking in 2013's 12 Years a Slave everything about this film seems generally authentic and emotional, the only thing used to enhance the experience is a beautiful cinematography that accentuates the feel of the ha... read more

"17.3. HBO No olihan tää aika laskelmoitu Oscar-haukka. Päällisinpuolin laadukas, mutta tuo niin tiukkaan esille kantansa orjuudesta, että on välillä vaikea ottaa tosissaan. Onhan se totta kai fakta, että orjuuttaminen on ihmiskunnan synkimpiä hetkiä, mutta kyllä mä olisin tuon tiennyt ilman pitkätukkaista Brad Pittiäkin."

Negative Depictions of Real People (24 movies items)

"William Ford is depicted in the film as a hypocrite who, while still bothered by slavery, still kept slaves anyway. In real life, Northup described Ford as a very kind man, who was completely blind to the horrors of slavery, and Northup didn't say a single negative thing about him in his memoir."
