Based of course on the classic 1994 animated film, we have the live-action version story, which is a winner! Of course, beautifully stunning as only #Disney does it. From what I remember (I have to watch the original again) this storyline follows the original and the cgi of the animals is fantastic with great music! A family fun Summertime movie to enjoy. My first viewing was in Dolby and it was great!

It’s only to be expected that there are very intense scenes in this film, and that’s correct. This is a true story based on the book “Twelve Years a Slave” by Solomon Northup who is a free black man from upstate New York and is abducted and sold into slavery. Chiwetel Ejiofor gives a great performance as Solomon as do most of the actors in this film. There are scenes that are hard to watch so keep that in mind before viewing it.
