After much anticipation, the blockbuster movie, The Therapist premiered on Friday, March 26 and immediately hit cinemas nationwide.
According to the producer, Onome Odometa and director, Kayode Kasum, Nollywood is taking a deep dive into authentic storytelling and relevance as captured in The Therapist.
The Therapist is an intriguing story of the realities of marriage and relationships, which questions the anomalies of the age-long concept.
Set-in modern-day Nigeria, the movie tells a story of the lead character, Eloho Odafe, who loses everything in a divorce to her abusive ex-husband after 11 years of marriage, because of a pre-nup that was signed in the whims of love and affection.
Odometa says the film will take viewers on a journey of self-reflection on what is labeled as sacrifice and compromise in relationships and how far is too much.
“We also love that on a quest for revenge, it highlights men who are also abused and manipulated and the fear of being emasculated has maintained the silence of it. Its comedic approach adds a breath of fresh air to the entire movie; the perfect story told by the right people at the most relevant time is definitely one to watch,” he affirms.
The Therapist parades top acts such as Rita Dominic, Chidi Mokeme, Anthony Monjaro, Michelle Dede, Saheed Balogun, Tope Tedela, Shaffy Bello, and Toyin Abraham amongst others.
