Breathtaking, shocking stunning, amazing, horrifying, brilliant, riveting, how do you say? … Oscars, Oscars, Oscars!!!
Wow. Among other dazzlers on the cast set, Chiwetel Ejiofor’s startling, yet not unexpectedly phenomenal performance as Solomon Northup complements the high tide of talent including pristine producers, writer - John Ridley for screenplay and director – Steve McQueen. Well done and Amen to, likely, the best picture of the year.
In all honesty knowing Plan B, Brad Pitt and Dede Gardner were involved in the film production of 12 Years a Slave, but NOT knowing Brad Pitt was on the cast, I was deliciously surprised and thrilled when he appeared as Bass with heroic, highly risky, anti-slavery talk of equality for all colors of skin. I am certain everyone watching this show applauded his bold human approach to the scenarios at hand.
Well done Brad and everyone who contributed to this outstanding film. Five out of five thumbs up.
