Two more clips from Steve McQueen's 12 Years A Slave, which Fox Searchlight opens in limited release today (NYC & LA), after a much-celebrated, albeit brief trip through the film festival circuit. It'll expand nationwide in coming weeks.I certainly don't intend to post every single released clip from the film, but these 2 new ones feature actresses who, until now, have been absent from all the clips released thus far - specifically Adepero Oduye, Alfre Woodard, and Lupita Nyong'o.In the first one, titled "Let Me Weep, Solomon," Solomon (Chiwetel Ejiofor) tries to shake Eliza (Adepero Oduye), whose children have been taken away from her, out of despair. And in the second one, titled "Take Comfort," Mistress Shaw (Alfre Woodard) gives Patsey (Lupita Nyong'O) some words of wisdom.For our past coverage on the film, read Frances Bodomo's review HERE; Jai interviewed Lupita Nyong'o HERE and Alfre Woodard HERE; I interviewed Steve McQueen HERE; and most recently, Vanessa interviewed Kelsey Scott (who plays Northop's wife) HERE.

In the first one, titled "Let Me Weep, Solomon," Solomon (Chiwetel Ejiofor) tries to shake Eliza (Adepero Oduye), whose children have been taken away from her, out of despair.

For our past coverage on the film, read Frances Bodomo's review HERE; Jai interviewed Lupita Nyong'o HERE and Alfre Woodard HERE; I interviewed Steve McQueen HERE; and most recently, Vanessa interviewed Kelsey Scott (who plays Northop's wife) HERE.
