Movie Review – LIGHT IN THE DARK
If you haven’t seen “A light in the Dark” till now I wonder you are waiting for, because this is coming highly recommended from me, and I had to drop other reviews for this brand new movie, that is making waves in the cinema.
Although their marketing budget wasn’t a lot and not a lot of people have heard of it, and so they are beginning to gain more traction through word of mouth referral.
I was certain that the movie will be beautiful considering my lovely Rita Dominic was featuring in it and as her greatest fan I just had to go check it out quickly.
I must say that this movie was awesome and they surpassed my expectations for a drama kind of movie. I sincerely feel that the trailer, poster and adverts were in no way close to explaining what to expect from this lovely movie. Take it from me when I say they had an amazing storyline.
The movie was written by Babatunde Ojo and directed by Ekene Som Mekwunye. If you know Rita you will know that she doesn’t put her seal on a wrong movie.
Rita has grown to becoming an icon and a personality to reckon with and I always love her style of bringing her specified movie character to live. The movie also featured Kalu Ikeagu, Joke Silva, Kiki Omeilie and other A list actors.
In this lovely movie “Rita Dominic” played the role of a young Yoruba girl called Jumoke who was married to an Igbo guy called Emeka. Emeka’s mother never wanted him to marry from another tribe, even Jumoke’s mother believed she was too pretty to marry an Igbo guy, when there were numerous fine guys from her tribe.
But against all odds they went on to get married and leaved a very happy marriage for over 19 years with their only daughter, until suddenly one faithful night the worst happened.
Some robbers came over to the house robbed them but also violated Jumoke, that took a great strain on their marriage, she felt that her husband didn’t do enough to protect her, she just couldn’t forgive him and let go, causing her to detest him so much. Just when I taught it was over, the worst happened. You will need to watch this beautiful movie to see how they managed the crisis.

To my verdict, remember the Nigerian Slang “ I never expected it” ? Well that was how I felt about this movie and just at the point when I thought it was over we found another secret that almost left me breathless, for crying out loud “How wicked can humans be?”
I really couldn’t contend my joy and excitement for this movie hence my scoring it a beautiful 9/10.
Please make sure you wait for the end, because only at that point will you fully understand all that transpired in the entire movie. What a real light in the dark, and it was a delight to see that we still have patient and faithful men.
Lessons learnt make sure you are careful of whom you share your problems with; most times the enemies are always very close.
