FIFTY - Sold Out On Opening Night



Omoni Oboli - one of the leading actresses in FIFTY was at Silverbird Cinema, Ikeja Mall on Friday 17th December 2015 to promote the movie. As expected Fifty's tickets were sold out 30 minutes before the cinema scheduled screening; leaving some cinema goers disappointed that they couldn't get tickets to watch the movie on its opening day.

FIFTY captures the lives of four Nigeria women at the pinnacle of their careers. Tola, Elizabeth, Maria and Kate, four friends forced, at midlife, to take inventory of their personal lives, while juggling careers and family against the sprawling backdrops of the upper middle-class neighbourhoods of Ikoyi and Victoria Island in Lagos. They live and work in the resurgent, ever-bustling, 24-hour megacity of Lagos, the commercial capital of Africa’s biggest and most vibrant economy.

Tola is a reality TV star whose marriage to lawyer Kunle never stood a chance thanks to an invidious family secret. Elizabeth is a celebrated obstetrician whose penchant for younger men has estranged her from her daughter. Forty-nine year-old Maria has an affair with a married man that results in an unexpected pregnancy and Kate’s battle with a life-threatening illness has plunged her into religious obsession.
  
In this tender but unflinching exploration of love and lust, power and rivalry, life and loss in twenty-first century Africa’s most populous city, and to the pulsating beat of the compelling and entrancing grooves of World Music superstar King Sunny Ade, Afrobeat titan Femi Kuti, German-Nigerian wunderkind singer-songwriter Nneka who all appear in the movie together with pop icon Tiwa Savage and the irrepressible Waje. We see our four lead characters muster courage, put on their six-inch heels, working hard and partying too, and strut confidently to tackle life’s curveballs head-on. Tola, Elizabeth, Maria and Kate rise triumphantly to the challenges of contemporary life faced by women everywhere and remain unbowed.
