Half of A Yellow Sun African Movie Review

Olanna and Kainene are glamorous twins from a wealthy Nigerian family. Upon returning to a privileged city life in newly independent 1960s Nigeria after their expensive English education, the two women make very different choices. Olanna shocks her family by going to live with her lover, the "revolutionary professor" Odenigbo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and his devoted houseboy Ugwu in the dusty university town of Nsukka; Kainene turns out to be a fiercely successful businesswoman when she takes over the family interests, and surprises even herself when she falls in love with Richard, an English writer.
Preoccupied by their romantic entanglements, and a betrayal between the sisters, the events of their life seem to loom larger than politics. However, they become caught up in the events of the Nigerian civil war, in which the lgbo people fought an impassioned struggle to establish Biafra as an independent republic, ending in chilling violence which shocked the entire world.
HALF OF A YELLOW SUN takes the sisters and their lovers on a journey through the war which is powerful, intensely emotional and, as the response of readers around the world has shown, it is a story which can touch everyone's heart.

An African City - Web Series Review

I also want to add that in order to keep this video short, there were a lot of things I had to cut out.

  • (1). People have compared this show to Sex and the City ... in a way, it is indeed very similar... 
  • (2). Each one of the five women represented a different kind of African Woman... different morals and different ideas on what life should be.. I really liked that... 
  • (3) This show does not 100% represent the "typical" African woman. It's more like then "Modern Day" African woman...
  •  (4) The African woman should be comfortable to talk about sex, love and relationships without being judged ... this show does that ... 
  • Lastly, I do not agree with one thing about the show, the way the ladies hop from one guy to another in such a short period of time and for silly reasons too ... is definitely not African... I disagree with that.. xoxo
