Stars: John Goodman, Michaela Coel, Noma Dumezweni
Review: The acting and storyline of this show is excellent. Really enjoy the acting which is superb. Love seeing John Goodman in roles like this, he’s really talented.Also gave this show a high rating due to its subject matter – genocide in Rwanda in 1994 where the Hutus killed 800,000 or so Tutsi peoples. I remember the news reports and being outraged no western country was doing anything to stop it. It really brought out to me that people of color were not seen as important on the world stage. Not enough to stop the genocide. Not enough like the Jewish holocaust.
It was disgusting, reprehensible and unforgivable the Tutsi peoples weren’t protected by those in the West who could do so, yet didn’t. It’s important to see information about this time being represented in media. While it’s drama, it is also informative, opens dialogue, brings that devastation into the minds of those who didn’t know, didn’t want to know, wanted to know. There are surely wounds many Rwandan peoples have from that time. The lead character in this series, expresses her grief of experiences as a child in that situation, with incredible grace, realism and talent.
I absolutely recommend this series. For the acting, the subject matter, the storyline and everything else.I can’t remember seeing a more honest tv show about a contemporary African problem (rogue warlords) and the way white people in the west make a very good living taking 10 to 20 years ‘bringing them to justice’ and pulling political and economic strings to get those cushy jobs .
The beautiful lead character plays a Rwandan that barely escaped the genocide. She is reared in the UK by a liberal white adoptive mother who is also a criminal prosecutor for the ICC in the Hague. Her daughter is totally against prosecuting the only ‘hero’ in the war and it is creating conflict in the family with discourse and dialogue on both sides of the genocide issue that I personally have never heard in public before. They leave no stone unturned in this show, also giving an overview of worthless UN peacekeepers and the French army, still in Rwanda.
What I like/LOVE about this show though, is they don’t give you the answer.
They present all sides and let you sort thru it yourself and come to your own conclusion. I hope it’s not snatched off the air. It’s very political and I’m very surprised it even made it on screen for one episode. I look forward to seeing the rest of the series and I hope that the BBC doesn’t capitulate to the puppetmasters that control the media and pull the plug on this early.
