Half of a Yellow Sun film is now available for streaming on Netflix.

Biyi Bandele’s adaptation of Adichie’s war drama is a 2013 Nollywood-Hollywood collaboration starring Thandie Newton and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

With the very limited theatrical release, only a lucky few saw the film on the big screen. Even with the DVD release and pay-per-view streaming last year, there are still a lot of people who haven’t seen it.

So if you have Netflix, you’re in for a treat. Happy viewing!
