  1. I’m still iffy about the movie, especially the casting. Kainene according to the novel is supposed to be borderline ugly while Olanna is supposed to be gorgeous. With the casting, I find that the lady playing Kainene is actually better looking than Olanna (Thandie Newton).
    Nevertheless I love hearing Chimamanda speak.
