Leesah Sea’s review published on Letterboxd:
TIFF Film #16
THE WOMAN KING kicks so much behind! This historical epic from director Gina Prince-Bythewood is so powerful. We haven’t been provided the experience to witness so many strong, powerful woman warriors on screen before and have the film be all about them. Viola Davis is an absolute titan in the title role surrounded by wonderful performances all around. Thuso Mdedu provides a riveting performance and shines in the spotlight with Davis. Amazing costumes, and a beautiful score. This isn’t a film that will soon be forgotten.
