2018 Academy Award submission for Best Foreign Language Picture — United Kingdom
Official Selection — 2017 Cannes Film Festival; 2018 Sundance Film Festival.
Nyoni, working in English and the local language of Nyanja, has an unforced way of dealing with themes like exploitation, oppression and superstition, showing how easy it can be for nonsense to pass itself off as sense.
Kenneth Turan | Los Angeles Times | Full review
Nyoni is clearly confident in her vision and the story she wants to tell, and in her capable hands, the result is spellbinding.
Katie Rife | AV Club | Full review
It’s rare and exhilarating that a new filmmaker arrives on the scene so sure of herself and so willing to take bold, counter-intuitive chances.
