*My main reasons to check this out were my wife and because of Lupita Nyong'o.
*Mira Nair also directed New York, I Love You which I enjoyed.

*It takes place in Uganda, but there were similarities I no” read more

"The acting was fine by the entire cast but unfortunately I found nothing to grab me in this film, had plenty of cliches but they didn't even build up to anything that really held my interest, which was a shame.
