Julius Onah’s ‘Luce’ May Just Get An Oscar Love

Reviews are in for filmmaker, Julius Onah‘s power psychological thriller, Luce. The Nigerian-American Filmmaker has received some remarkable critics which are absolutely all amazing. As it stands, it seems Chinonye Chukwu’s acclaimed drama, Clemency is not the only Nigerian-directed film that could get some Oscar love next year. 

The movie mirrors Luce Edgar (Kelvin Harrison Jr.), a model student adopted him from a war-torn African nation. Luce is a good son that pleases his parents (Naomi Watts and Tim Roth) who, while they love him, they still regard concerns that he might be haunted by the violent trauma of his past.

When Luce’s teacher, Harriet (Oscar-winning actress, Octavia Spencer) discovers the well-researched paper he wrote about political violence, she begins to investigate, but her discoveries set off a chain of events that will change everyone’s lives forever.

Luce is currently sitting at a 92% on the movie review website, Rotten Tomatoes, critics have almost solely good things to say about the movie.

Concerning the beautifully directed movie by Onah, Katie Walsh of Tribune News Service gave her premium review after rating the movie a 4 out of 4 stars:

Onah crafts a film where we never know who or what to believe. And though we crave the truth, much like the real world, it’s never freely given.

Katie Walsh

Luce was also picked up for distribution by NEON — the same distributor behind 2018 Oscar darling, I, Tonya, and the same distributors for Chinonye Chukwu’s Clemency. The movie is set to be released on August 2, we wouldn’t be shocked to see Oscar favourite, Spencer, nab a nomination for the film.
