    At least for most Africans and fans of Chimamanda, this movie will make this epic memorable stay alive as long as our memories can hold the pictures and sounds. That the producer is an African writer and movie director brings the emotions closer home than Hollywood!

    Hey, Ainehi.
    Missed this..
    And for some reason, I haven’t seen this movie on any cinema listing since- and even today- in London and I thought I it would be long out already. Know why?
