do they show in "12 years a slave"?
I almost avoided Schindler's List for this reason, but then went to see it anyway and really liked it.
Twelve years a slave is to slavery what Schindler's List was to the Holocost. I don't care if I never see another movie on those subjects since those 2 movies said everything I needed to ever hear or see. I was aware going in that there would be scenes that I would not wish to hear or view, but I felt it was worth enduring ( I closed my eyes and maybe my ears once or twice). Twelve Years a Slave is at the top of my list of best movies and imho should win best picture/best actor/director.
