Mr Urbani and I treated ourselves to
a lunch and cinema date yesterday,
and took ourselves off to Oxted to see
which I expect you've heard about.
The film is based on the true story of
a man's fight for survival and freedom.
A free black man living in the North of the USA,
he was abducted,
taken to the South and
sold into slavery.
The performance by Chiwetel Ejiofor is
quite remarkable and very believable.
There are also strong performances by,
and Brad Pitt.
The film has been nominated for
9 Academy Awards,
including Best Picture,
and 7 Golden Globe Awards.
This film has been rated a 15
and, at times, it makes for difficult viewing
with scenes of physical and mental cruelty.
On the 'Joanna Scale'
this film deserves
Go see it!
