Add Madonna to the long list of moviegoers walking away from 12 Years a Slave in tears.
The megastar was the surprise guest at the film's premiere last night during the New York Film Festival.
"She was wiping away tears after the movie," a fellow festivalgoer says. "She said she loved the movie."
Madge didn't hit the red carpet during the evening's celebrity arrivals. Instead, she took photos with 12 Years director Steve McQueen backstage before slipping into the theater right as the movie began.
