What critics are saying.
A huge spectacle… African in nature but universal in its depiction of greed, suppression and tyranny. – DwightBrownInk.com
A rousing motion picture filled with well-choreographed battle scenes effectively folded into stories of human interest. – ReelViews
It’s a well-crafted big screen event movie that stands out from this year’s pack of blockbusters for its context, if not for its content. – Observer
This movie’s true strength is in what says about the importance of female power today. – Shadows on the Wall
It’s worth checking out for Davis’ performance alone, and the rest will hopefully garner enough attention to ensure it becomes the classic it deserves to be. – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
What is the film about?
The Woman King is the remarkable story of the Agojie, the all-female unit of warriors who protected the African Kingdom of Dahomey in the 1800s with skills and a fierceness unlike anything the world has ever seen. Inspired by true events, The Woman King follows the emotionally epic journey of General Nanisca (Oscar®-winner Viola Davis) as she trains the next generation of recruits and readies them for battle against an enemy determined to destroy their way of life. Some things are worth fighting for.
The film stars Viola Davis as Nanisca, Thuso Mbedu as Nawi, Lashana Lynch as Izogie, Sheila Atim as Amenza, and John Boyega as King Ghezo.
