Solomon Northup Is Confronted By Mistress Epps In New Clip From '12 Years A Slave'

Here’s yet another clip from Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave, which opens in limited release this Friday, after a much-celebrated, albeit brief trip through the film festival circuit.
In this new short clip, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Solomon Northup is confronted by Sarah Paulson’s stone-cold Mistress Epps, as she reminds him of who (or maybe I should say, what) he is.

Fox Searchlight will open 12 Years A Slave theatrically on October 18, in a limited roll-out and will then expand nationwide in successive weeks. 

The drama boasts an impressive cast of actors, including: Chiwetel Ejiofor (as Solomon Northup), Michael FassbenderLupita Nyong’oPaul DanoBenedict CumberbatchRuth Negga, Adepero OduyeAlfre WoodardScoot McNairyGarret DillahuntBrad PittMichael K. WilliamsPaul GiamattiSarah Paulson and others.

All this time, I thought that was an afro-puff on the side of her head, any who. Although the Butler made it's way to my neck of the woods, I doubt this one will. If it does, I have yet to decide If I will partake in the viewing, but I am 100% certain my parents will.


DANG! She knows he's educated! I'm sure they NYPD or LAPD would hire this woman in a hot second.


You know, this is what stop&frisk is like!
