Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Human beings are mysterious and surprising. There is something irresistible about a movie that reaches that conclusion.
Fresh: Gurira acts with fire and pride and, at times, a despair bordering on instability.
Fresh: An unexpected gem about true love, infertility and a meddling mother-in-law.
Fresh: This is one of the most striking entries in the 2013 global wave of black cinema, but also admittedly one that poses hurdles to audiences with conventional expectations.
Awesome movie! Really well done. Beautifully shot too. The colors rich and crisp and just pop right off the screen. The acting is great too and holds the whole thing together as these characters are pulled into this not-so-uncommon familial conflict of infertility. The film immerses you in the dynamics of this remote Nigerian enclave in Brooklyn, NY.

I loved this movie. It tells the ordinary story of a married couple who are having trouble conceiving a child. However, this couple are of traditional Nigerian heritage, and in their culture, this sort of a situation has extraordinary consequences. Preeeettty interesting.
Incredible acting and beautiful cinematography make this film well worth the watch. Enjoy!
