HALF OF A YELLOW SUN - from Nigeria, rated MA15+, 1h 51min, Drama Romance
HALF OF A YELLOW SUN is an epic love story set in Nigeria that weaves together the lives of four people swept up in the turbulence of war. The story is based on best selling novel of the same name by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and from the producers of The Constant Gardener and The Last King of Scotland. The film stars Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave), Thandie Newton (The Pursuit of Happyness) and Anika Noni Rose (Dreamgirls, No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency) and is directed by Biyi Bandele.
When civil war breaks out in Nigeria in the late 1960s, political lines are drawn and families are forced to scatter. Odenigbo (Ejiofor) and Olanna (Newton) find themselves in the middle of an escalating conflict that drives them from their university-town home and threatens Olanna’s relationship with her sister, Kainene (Anika Noni Rose).
As the war escalates, and the situation in the newly established Biafra becomes increasingly hopeless, Odenigbo, Olanna and their family struggle in the face of hardships of every kind yet still find a way to survive.
Woven around the relationship between twin sisters, HALF OF A YELLOW SUN is a very human story set against the backdrop of displacement, blockades, refugee camps and national ruin. In the face of devastation and loss, this is a story of resilience and hope told with a warmth and jaunty vibrancy that depicts life and its shifting fortunes in a deeply personal and intimate portrayal.
