Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: But the complex overall themes here are dealt with in such abrupt fashion that their treatment ultimately feels superficial. Still, you can hardly indict Onah for trying to make complex themes briskly palatable.
Rotten: Just as ambition eclipses the protagonist's judgment, the movie loses its way in an excess of generic story strands.
Fresh: Sure, it's an ages-old dilemma and there are moments that feel very much like a first film. But the strong lead performance by Aml Ameen ("Sense8") lends shading and depth to Onah's story.
Fresh: Writer-director Onah, himself a Nigerian-born artist, understands Seyi through and through. His storytelling is simple but brisk and coherent.
