12 YEARS A SLAVE
One harsh overseer, in a rare moment of reflection, states the message that every viewer must take away: "I say no man of conscience can take the lash to another human day in and day out without shredding at his own self." (Stolen Into Slavery tells Northup’s history for readers in grades 7–12, and Northup’s own memoir is also available.) Warning: Rated R for violence, cruelty, racist language, nudity, and brief sexuality. Directed by Steve McQueen.
