12 Years A Slave 12 Years A Slave

“I was stunned by it. You always have a hope when you’re making films, when you get to see them and they’ve gone off and gotten edited that when they come back they meet your hope and expectation of what they should be. This time it exceeded my expectation. I found it unbelievable what Steve McQueen had done.”

Congratulations also to Lupita Nyong’o for winning the Oscar for “Best Supporting Actress” for her role on the film.
