Brilliant movie - in which man's inhumanity to man brings a tear to the eye. Rewrites what we thought we knew of the Mau Mau uprising in Kenya, and thye aftermath. Wonderful acting from young and old.
It's never too late to dream.
Based on a true story, this inspirational drama profiles the amazing determination of 84-year-old Kenyan Kimani N'gan'ga Maruge (Oliver Litondo), a Mau Mau freedom fighter who wants to take advantage of a new universal education decree by learning how to read. Although he faces governmental bureaucracy and tribal racism, Maruge's cause is eventually championed by teacher Jane Obinchu (Naomie Harris), who is set on erasing illiteracy in Kenya.
