Steve McQueen

The darling of the British film and art scene took a painful piece of American history and turned it into the must-see film of the year with 12 Years a Slave, starring fellow Brit Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt. McQueen, who won an Oscar for helming the drama, is poised to join the ranks of the best directors of his generation.
