Just watched last week, awesome film. Created the same anger in me that Mississippi Burning did all those years ago, possibly worse because it was legal. Brad Pitt is slowly becoming Robert Redford:-)

a good antidote for that anger is the amazing story of William Wilberforce who fought successfully against slavery . well worth watching

I avoided watching 12 years a slave because of the reports of the harrowing scenes.

Interestingly, Jan and I visited Wilberforce's house in Hull a few weeks ago. It was very interesting but too much for one visit.  We concentrated on his anti-slavery work, but there was so much more to know about him.

This film may help us before we revisit the museum.

what an amazing coincidence , you certainly get about chris !!!

it is an inspiring film [amazing grace] certainly 12 years a slave is rather harrowing but makes you appreciate what folks went through .

Folks Phil?  Black people surely!
Now looka here...
I did not say I was a millionaire...
But I said I have spent more money than a millionaire!
Cause if I had kept all my money that I'd already spent,
I would've been a millionaire a looong time ago...
