I think my husband and I had to be two of the last people to see 12 Years a Slave. Why? Because D. likes an uplifting movie. This was definitely not an uplifting movie. D. also said he already knew the story and how it ended. I was going to make arrangements to either go by myself or tag along with friends, when out of the blue D said “ Do you want to see 12 Years a Slave Tonight? Not to appear too anxious I said “Well maybe. Let me think about it.”
We did see the movie and D. had to admit the movie was well done the acting superb, and deserving of the Academy Award for best picture
Hopefully I can convince him to see some of the other nominated movies that we missed.
