  • Description

Historical action epic based on the true story of an all-female unit who defended their land at all costs.

The remarkable story of the Agojie, the all-female unit of warriors who protected the African Kingdom of Dahomey in the 1800s with skills and a fierceness unlike anything the world has ever seen. Inspired by true events, The Woman King follows the emotionally epic journey of General Nanisca as she trains the next generation of recruits and readies them for battle against an enemy determined to destroy their way of life. Some things are worth fighting for.

★★★★ A thunderously cinematic good time: see it on the biggest screen you can find The Observer
★★★★ The Woman King is a story of sisterhood and racial identity that deserves to pack in the crowds. About time, indeed Time Out
★★★★ This is an action spectacle with a beating heart Time
