2. Characters are unique
The characters are pretty special. They were individually unique and carried out their characters very well. It is like the roles were a part of them/their lives.
3. Great Lesson
The movie depicts the lives and real issues of youths. It teaches lessons on rebellion, social conformity, and finding individuality. Mofe Thompson played by Sharon Ephraim, on her journey to finding herself as apart from her religious beliefs and childhood interests, teaches the audience the importance of valuing relationships and embracing differences.
4. The set/scenery
The set designer did something with this film. Nollywood needs to hire this person for EVERY movie. The colors were interesting and will keep your eyes locked on the screen throughout!
5. The storyline
This is a story I have yet to see in Nollywood! It is exciting to see that we now have opportunities for young adults to tell their stories, their own way. The plot for No Good Girl is very fascinating. For a film made in Lagos, this film was not limited in any way. The dialogue is funny, articulate, and even sometimes, heartbreaking :’(
6. New Talents of Nollywood
Cannot underestimate the acting skills of the actors in this film! No Good Girl depicts talents like Sharon Ephraim, Cynthia Ebijie, Lateef Rabiu, Theresa Ajayi, Eniola Abolarin, Saphire Ekeng. THESE CHARACTERS KILLED THEIR ROLES! The relationships/connections depicted were effortless!
7. The Music
The producers did their thing with soundtracks! Just like with the set design, they definitely had the audience in mind when choosing these soundtracks.
8. Challenges Audience
Not only does this movie teach several lessons, it also challenges the audience to think. The movie provides opportunities for the audience to introspect; I think that was intentional from the writer and producers.
9. Not only for young adults
Although centered around Mofetola Thompson, most part of Mofe’s life was influenced by her mother played by Ronke Odusanya and the rigorously religious upbringing by her priest father. I think this is a movie for the whole family. It influences the audience to soul-search.
10. This will be the movie of 2020 and we want to see more movies like this.
