MO Abudu, Omoni Oboli, Dakore Egbuson-Akande, Ireti Doyle among others were hosted to a pre-premiere cocktail by British Council ahead of the London Film Festival Premiere of 'Fifty.
The British Council hosted the cast and crew of the much-talked about film ‘Fifty’ to a pre-Premiere cocktail at Stephen St. Kitchen, London as part build-up to this Saturday’s BFI London Premiere.
Earlier this year, 'Fifty' was selected under the ‘Love Category’ amongst a diverse selection of films and events on the BFI London Festival programme.
Fifty is perfect for this year’s festival theme “The Year of the Strong Woman”; a fitting theme for this riveting exploration of love and lust, power and rivalry, seduction and infidelity.
Tickets for the world premiere of 'Fifty' at the upcoming 59th BFI London Film Festival, sold out in just four days.
The upcoming movie stars top talented Nollywood actors like Ireti Doyle, Dakore Akande, Nse Ikpe Etim and Omoni Oboli.
'Fifty' captures a few pivotal days in the lives of four Nigeria women at the pinnacle of their careers. Meet Tola, Elizabeth, Maria and Kate four friends forced at midlife to take inventory of their personal lives, while juggling careers and family against the sprawling backdrops of the upper middle-class neighbourhoods of Ikoyi and Victoria Island in Lagos.
Tola is a reality TV star whose marriage to lawyer Kunle never stood a chance thanks to an invidious family secret.
Elizabeth is a celebrated obstetrician whose penchant for younger men has estranged her from her daughter.
Forty-nine year-old Maria has an affair with a married man that results in an unexpected pregnancy and Kate’s battle with a life-threatening illness has plunged her into religious obsession.
The upcoming film features beats from King Sunny Ade, titan Femi Kuti, German-Nigerian wunderkind singer-songwriter Nneka who also features in movie alongside Tiwa Savage and Waje.
'Fifty' is executive produced by MO Abudu, directed by Biyi Bandele, produced by Tope Oshin Ogun, with Malcom McLean as director of photography.
'Fifty' will premiere officially in Lagos Nigeria on December 13, 2015.
