Oscar Rewind: 12 Years A Slave

Season 4, Episode 155,  Jan 10, 02:00 PM

We did it again! We've watched nine wonderful films from the 2013-2014 season. The movie that took the cake, 12 Years A Slave, is up for review by The Roomies this week and believe it or not, We Have Thoughts... (I'm sorry. I couldn't resist.)

It's no secret that we don't love watching films that depict people in pain. Especially people of color. It feels easy, and awards bait-y. The novelty of this film is the beginning, where we find our hero a free man, only to be kidnapped into slavery. Steve McQueen at the helm of this film made us feel like we were in safe hands. He provided a beautiful film that is rich in color and texture, as well as told boldly by its lead cast.
