I'm an artist, student, polyglot and aspiring contortionist.
I speak English, Hungarian, Japanese (intermediate), Chinese (beginner), Swahili (beginner)
Interests
I have not seen the movie yet but very much looking forward to it.

But I have read a few articles and noticed comments along the lines of, 'why not make movies about how bad it was for all families in that time, child labor, slavery in Africa, other minorities who were treated unfairly...'

Seriously?

Are you going to walk up to a fireman in the middle of a mission and ask, “What about the houses being burglarized?”
(Unrelated quote, but I thought it fit - from www.rageagainsttheminivan.com/…


There is no comparison between how black people were sold and bought as though they were no more than mere objects and any other issue you could bring up. If you want to see a different movie about some different issue, then GO SEE IT!

Or why don't you just go on about other movies? Eg; Why isn't Avatar about global warming (or insert desired issue)?

Or go up to an organization out to end world hunger and ask "what about sex trafficking or the exploitation of children or slavery"?

(As a sort of side note, there are more slaves today than there ever were at any other point in human history.)

If you want to depict a different aspect of history, then go ahead and do it, but don't attack a film that is totally unrelated.

12 Years A Slave is a film based on Solomon Northup's life! It isn't just about slavery. So if you are one of those insensitive imbeciles, please stop it with your comments.
