ULA ZUHRA's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

I don't understand how something so barbaric and animal could be accepted so profoundly in the past. It's inhumane and this film is the most honest portrayal about it. How the other slaves wouldn't bat an eye while another group was being beaten. Incredible. It hurts too much to keep watching, I needed a break every few minutes, I was completely depressed. Patsey, oh Patsey, you deserve ALL the awards for this.
