The movie takes place before the Civil War in United States. Solomon Northup, a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery.
Tony also reviewed two movies opening Friday. He says "Runner Runner" starring Justin Timberlake isn't worth your time. In fact, Tony gives that movie a "D".
But he does recommend seeing "Gravity" starring Sandra Bullock. Tony says this movie is one of the best space movies of all times.
You can watch Talking Pictures Saturdays at noon on CW30 and Sundays at 4:00 p.m. on ABC 4 Utah.
