I am of course referring to the movie adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie‘s lovely novel ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’. I read this book many moons ago and have been waiting for the film adaptation to appear at the cinema (I already have my movie partner -YBS that’s you!)
I just need the date, movie peeps! Having researched online, all I can find is ‘awaiting a UK release date’. In the meantime, here’s a lil video about the movie.
I am sooo looking forward to the current batch of movies starring Black/British actors. The films ’12Years a Slave’ and ‘Mandela’ are musts for me and The Butler, which I saw last month, was a phenomenal movie. I am soooo proud of Idris, Chiwetel and David.
At this point, I have to mention a movie I saw on the plane this week called ‘Fruitvale Station’. This stars a wonderful actor named Michael B Jordan (no, not the sportsman!) who is absolutely brilliant. I am not sure if we will get a release date here in the UK but I really hope so. Everyone should watch this movie. Oh and I must also mention another movie I watched on the plane; ‘Parkland’ about the events after the assassination of President John F Kennedy. Only a few days before, I visited the Sixth Floor Museum at Deeley Plaza, where the assassination took place and it was very eerie indeed. So, watching the film so soon after was helpful. It focused on people we have not heard much about over the years, like the doctor who treated the president and what he went through on that day.
At this rate, I will have no time to write!!
Until next time,
