I think of Opa William’s Three Wise Men and I cannot help but ask myself, how much really is new in the “new Nollywood”? Is it enough that they feature the famed Lekki-Ikoyi bridge or have fancier advertorials or show at cinemas? If one says it is the storyline, I will be forced to ask again; “what makes a great movie; a great storyline or a great plot structure?
Competing against “La La Land” and “Moonlight” for best picture will be “Manchester by the Sea”; “Arrival”; “Lion”; “Fences”; “Hell or High Water”; “Hidden Figures”; and “Hacksaw Ridge,”
Izu Ojukwu kept us waiting so long for this movie that it almost started feeling like the second coming. 76, the movie, is a deeply affecting study of the human condition and well realised piece of art.
This unarguably is the most interesting premiere in recent time.
So, who among these refreshing new faces, will emerge the winner of this audition?
What is it like, for an amputee to live next door to the man who cut off that missing part of him? Or, worse still, how a woman who got raped and had her husband killed can survive with the perpetrator living just across the street?
Congratulations to her.

This is a great movie and I particularly like the ability of the director, Mira Nair, to turn what might have been just another story, to a great material. You should go see it!
Away from its objectionable central theme, the movie is laced with quick wit and innuendos that are not only reflective of the peculiar Nigerian experience but also “worth their weight in laughter.”
The filmmaker shared a screenshot of the email she received from the festival committee to make the announcement.
May his soul rest in peace.
Yewande Adekoya Abiodun claims the movie marketer refused to pay up the N2 million he owes her, and is instead making death threats.
Ibinabo Fiberesima is back like she never left.
I like that the movie approaches this very familiar and relatable subject with a simplicity and zing that generates genuine, heartfelt laughter in the audience. In that moment, you just might have been laughing at your own self. The movie does not try too hard to be funny, if anything, its originality endears...
