Sometimes you have to prepare yourself for the journey a film takes you on. So it is with “12 Years a Slave,” a harrowing, unforgettable drama that doesn’t look away from the reality of slavery and, in so doing, helps us all fully, truly confront it.Seen first in director Steve McQueen’s film are the empty eyes of a group of slaves preparing to work a field. They then sleep crushed together in a small room. Among them is Solomon Northup (British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor), who had another life.

In 1841, Northup was a free man earning a good living as a musician in Saratoga, N.Y. When his wife and two young children leave for a trip, Solomon is approached by two strangers claiming to be businessmen seeking a violinist to perform in Washington, D.C. He drinks and dines with them, then awakens in chains, captured by slave traders. He is beaten, and though plotting an escape, is shipped South to be sold.

Renamed “Platt,” Northup is bought at a grotesque, ornate auction by a conscientious land owner, Ford (Benedict Cumberbatch). But a run-in with Ford’s cruel overseer (Paul Dano) necessitates Northup’s being sold to work the plantation of the unhinged Epps (Michael Fassbender). As Northup learns to survive — his identity, his humanity, stripped away — he hopes to get word to his family in the North.
