There is a name that I have been hearing for some time. The name is Lupita Nyong’o. She stars as Patsy in the brilliant 12 Years A Slave, Steve McQueen’s gripping picture of a man named Solomon Northrop, who was kidnapped and captured from New York and sold into slavery in New Orleans in 1941. The film was shot down in New Orleans and I have heard Lupita’s name amongst my co-stars, townsfolk, and in the local press. I saw the film over the weekend twice and I see what all the praise is about. Lupita blazes on the screen in her very first feature role. Her performance is courageous, breathtaking, heartbreaking, and all together unforgettable. And it is a breakthrough performance that you will not soon forget. (x)
