Description
Biyi Bandele's drama Half of a Yellow Sun stars Thandie Newton and Anika Noni Rose as twins born into a well-to-do Nigerian family. After completing their education overseas, each makes life choices that lead to a falling out between the once-close women. Eventually, the two sisters become embroiled in their home country's political unrest, which soon leads to civil war. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
