‘12 Years A Slave’ is based on an incredible true story of one man’s fight for survival and freedom. In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty (personified by a malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender) as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon’s chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt) forever alters his life.
‘12 Years a Slave’ is Steve McQueen’s acclaimed cinematic conjuring of an African American’s bestselling, harrowing memoir exactly 160 years after it was published to great fanfare.

‘Delivery Man’ is a heartfelt comedy about the complexities of life, seizing the day and becoming the person you are destined to be.
David Wozniak (Vince Vaughn) has always led a simple life.
A delivery driver for his family’s meat company, he is seemingly content existing in a state of perpetual mediocrity. While David has a good heart, charming everyone he comes in contact with, he is immature, unfocused, in serious debt and in desperate need of some sense of direction in his life. But when he finds out he is the biological father of 533 children and 142 of them are suing to learn his identity, everything changes, and David decides he wants to do the right thing and for once, be held accountable for his actions.

Eager to learn more about some of his newly found progeny, he tracks them down and begins looking out for them. Rather unexpectedly he becomes involved with these kids emotionally, and for the first time in his life understands how good it feels to put the interests of others ahead of his own. At the same time, David’s girlfriend, Emma (Cobie Smulders), enlightens him with news of her pregnancy, but knowing David, her expectations are minimal. Has David’s recent trials and tribulations helped him grow enough to truly fulfil his responsibilities?
