REVIEWS

‘”Handsomely shot…Nouah gives a rock-solid lead performance, radiating calm authority and moral unease without a flicker of histrionics. The period-perfect nods to Afrocentric fashion, music and hair are great fun…a crash course in Nigerian cinema for international viewers…striking a healthy balance between educating and entertaining.”’
