The Woman King

Gina Prince-Bythewood | 2022 | 135 MINS
Viola Davis is a force of nature as Nanisca as she trains the next generation of recruits and readies them for battle against an enemy determined to destroy their way of life.

In Detail

‘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. Set in the slave trading state of Dahomey, Nanisca urges her king to stop selling prisoners to the Portuguese.

This is a huge spectacle...African in nature but universal in its depiction of greed, suppression and tyranny. A deft team of female artists have masterfully created a feminist allegory that will excite and inform movie lovers for years to come.
