Finally there is a UK release date for the movie adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie ‘s book “ Half Of A Yellow Sun ” .
The book narrates the two story of two sisters Olanna and Kainene during the Nigerian civil war. The film stars Chiwetel Ejifor , Thandie Newton , Onyeka Onwenu and Genevieve Nnaji.
Half Of A Yellow Sun is one of my favourite books , not only did it educate me on the history and sufferings of the Biafra War but also because I developed a love for the characters . I felt like I knew each character personally and was with them during the war. My favourite character Ugwu the house boy , his insult of ‘ May you suffer from acute diarrhoea ‘ , still cracks me up till this day.
I can not wait to this see this movie and i hope it is just as good as the book.
The movie is set for release in the UK tomorrow : Friday 11th April 2014 .
