12 Years a Slave

Gravity, 12 Years a Slave and more films I expect will win at the Academy Awards

Chiwetel Ejifor, Lupita Nyong’o and Michael Fassbender are all nominated for 12 Years a Slave but I think only the film will win.

True stories dominate my picks for the best movies of 2013

Chiwetel Ejiofor as a free black sold into slavery propelled my choice for best film of 2013.

12 Years a Slave, a masterpiece, leads a long list of new movies now playing

Chiwetel Ejiofor, as well as Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong'o are sure to be nominated for their superb acting in 12 Years a Slave.
