Celebrities attend ’12 Years a Slave’ premiere in Atlanta

IMG_7704The Steve McQueen-directed epic 12 Years a Slave has sent out ripples of excitement all across North America and engendered strong Oscar consideration.

McQueen’s critically-acclaimed adaptation of Solomon Northup’s book of the same name is a spellbinding true story of a free, educated and successful black man from the North in 1841 who was tricked, sold and condemned to enslavement in the Deep South for a dozen years — thus the title of the book and movie — has blown people back in the film festival and screenings. IMG_7765
