Blessing Egbe Hits The Cinemas With Omoni Oboli And Kate Henshaw In “The Women”

Posted on September 27, 2017

Blessing Egbe, the producer and director of the wave-making ‘Lekki Wives’ returns to the cinemas this independence weekend with a thrilling drama, ‘The Women’.

The film stars heavy hitters like Ufuoma McDermott as Omo, Kate Henshaw as Ene, Omoni Oboli as Teni and Blessing Obiang as Rose.

The ladies play four dysfunctional friends whose friendship is marked by rivalry, gossip and competition.

The movie also stars Kalu Ikeagwu as Bez, Femi Branch as Ayo, Gregory Ojefua as Chubby and Anthony Monjaro as Maro.

The core of the movie is summed up by Teni who tells her husband Bez (KaluIkeagwu) that “where two or three women are gathered, there is a silent war.”

The war in The Women is silent but finally escapes its lid and bursts into the open with very devastating consequences.

Speaking on the movie Blessing Egbe, who wrote, produced and directed the movie said: “The Women is a feel-good ‘dramedy’ that will entertain and leave cinema goers wanting more. Even though it addresses very serious man/woman issues, it does so with large doses of humour and in the process teaches lessons of true friendship, truth and contentment.  Please go out and enjoy yourselves. It will be worth your time.

Following the true and tested formula of a get-away weekend during which old secrets surface leading to revelations and dire consequences, The Women sees four couples on a weekend get-away to celebrate one of the women’s fortieth birthday.

A chance encounter with a young lady leads to an altercation between her and the celebrant which then precipitates a complete unravelling not just of their friendships but their marriages.

The four lead female actors give a good account of themselves from the sultry and discontented Omo to the snobbish Teni and then the uninhibited Ene and the sexually frustrated Rose.

All the women have something they are looking for.

The Women will hit the cinemas on Friday September 29.
