Haven't the 2014 BAFTA winning movies been a delight? We've had Leonardo DiCaprio in The Great Gatsby and Wolf of Wallstreet, Oprah on the big screen, and dashes of Jennifer Lawrence in various places. The evening itself was a real emotion turner, especially when Cate Blanchett colorfully talked about the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman in her acceptance speech. Choosing between the 2014 BAFTA winning movies to find the best is hard, but these are my personal favorites.
12 Years a Slave is based on the memoirs of Solomon Northup, a man of free-born status, but was kidnapped and enslaved in Washington DC. Over the course of his enslavement, he worked on plantations in Louisiana. Tragically, these 12 years separate Solomon from his wife, children, and freedom. The emotions in this film are high, and it is incredibly deserving of its 'Best Picture' title.Out of all the 2014 BAFTA winning movies, it is probably one of the most challenging to watch!
