    Yawn, sick and tired of the same ol’ slave poor black movies. Enough…they couldn’t even get Black AMERICANS to be in that movie but what do you expect with Brad Pitt producing it…he has a hard on for them type of Blacks over there anyway…probably gonna adopt some mo’. Anyway, this actor is very hard to look at…and what’s with the big ass scar across his forehead. To his gf, good luck..if you can put up with that..you are a saint!

    The scar is from the car accident in which his father was killed.

    Its interesting how some don’t want to see any stories about slavery…you just want to erase it from existence, huh? Who Chiwetel loves or where the actors were born has nothing to do with acting.Solomon Northrop, who he played was an actual man who wrote a book about his capture into slavery. It’s acting, but also the truth, American History..live with it!

    12 Years A Slave is based on the memoirs of Solomon Northrup. An actual person who lived thru it. For some of you all to say you are tired of movies about slavery, exactly how many movies have been about slavery? I can name a few (Roots, Amistad, Django, Beloved, and a few others). There are literally about 15 to 20 movies that Holllywood has made that slavery has been a subject matter of the film. Compared to thousands of non-slavery movies. So for you to say you are tired of these movies, you are reaching. This movie is about America’s history, not black history. And it’s 2014, people are allowed to love whomever they choose. Some people are so miserable with their lives, that they will pick apart others. He’s happy, she’s happy. If he was green and she was purple, people would still find something to complain about. Get over it.
