we all know the reason this movie was on my radar so there’s no need to bring up how disgusting i am, okay?
that being said, the thing that kept it on my radar was that it was directed by wanuri kahiu (of rafiki notoriety, brilliance personified). when the trailer dropped, i wasn’t sure what to expect but given that i stopped trusting trailers ages ago (sometimes terrible movies have great trailers & terrific movies have abysmal trailers, it’s an epidemic),…
