The long awaited Half of A Yellow Sun finally premiered in the UK, at the Odeon Cinemas on Tuesday the 8th of April and we’ve got pictures from the event which had Chiwetel Ejiofor, Thandie Newton, John Boyega and the director of the movie Biyi Bandele amongst others.
Half of A Yellow Sun is a screen adaptation of a book of the same title from Chimamanda Adichie, follows Olanna (Newton) and Kainene (Rose), glamorous twins from a wealthy Nigerian family. Returning to a privileged city life in newly independent 1960s Nigeria after their expensive English education, Olanna shocks her family by going to live with her lover in the dusty university town of Nsukka, and Kainene turns out to be a successful businesswoman when she takes over the family interests — and surprises herself when she falls in love with Richard (Mawle), an English writer
