Red carpet arrivals for 12 Years a Slave, Director Steve McQueen’s harrowing new film opening at the New York Film Festival in New York. Based on the memoir of freeman Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), who was abducted in Washington, D.C. in 1841 and delivered to a slave trader, a figure of both horror and pathos who comes to embody the true savagery—and insanity—of slavery.

Steve McQueen (DIR), Chiwetel Ejiofor, Paul Dano, Michael Fassbender, Lupita Nyong’o, Adepero Oduye, Sarah Paulson, Rob Steinberg, Alfre Woodard, Liza Bennett
