posted in: News | 3

HALF OF A YELLOW SUN is the screen adaptation of the book of the same name, written by Chimamanda Adichie and directed by Biyi Bandele.

When privileged twins Olanna (Thandie Newton) and Kainene (Anika Noni Rose), return from England to newly independent Nigeria after obtaining an expensive English education, they make shocking life choices. Olanna moves in with her lover, the “revolutionary professor” Odenigbo (Chiwetel Ejiofor), while Kainene takes over the family’s interests and falls in love with an English writer (Joseph Mawle). Intimate betrayals and the onset of the Nigerian civil war caused by the declaration of independence of the southeastern regions as the Republic of Biafra, turn the lives of the sisters around in a way that they never imagined, as they are caught in a chilling violence that shocked the entire world.

  1. I do consider all the ideas you’ve presented to your post. They’re very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very short for starters. May just you please lengthen them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.

  2. Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon everyday. It’s always useful to read through content from other writers and practice a little something from their web sites.
