Kunle Afolayan's CITATION Is A Break From The Norm

 


⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

 

 

Why are we not surprised?

 

Inspired by BBC's 2019 sex for grades documentary, Citation follows the story of Moremi Oluwa (Temi Otedola) a 21 year old postgraduate student who seeks justice after an attempted rape experience with her professor.

 

 

This is not an unfamiliar story, but it is told in a rather compelling and intriguing manner. I love it! I was particularly blown away by the film's excellent cinematography, sound, costuming, set design, dialogue, and use of language.

 

 

I love how CITATION reminds us of the beauty of Africa, its people, culture and fashion. Noteworthy was also the chemistry between Moremi and her Dr Boo (Gabriel Afolayan). Their lovey-dovey scenes were like icing on the already yummy cake.
