We've seen several trailers and featurettes of director 's 12 Years A Slave, but now the first clip has officially made its way online. In the scene, 's Solomon Northrup, a free man, is shopping with his wife. A man named Jasper enters the store and is immediately reprimanded by his owner. The scene is dramatic, but restrained, mostly focusing on glances that manage to have an emotional impact by showcasing the terrible social structures of the times.

12 Years a Slave opens on October 18.
