Popcorn Culture - Review: The Woman King

To say that we were hyped for The Woman King would be an understatement. Although cinemas in Malaysia decided to give it a pass, we finally get to (legally) watch and review it thanks to Netflix. In this 1820s war drama, Viola Davis plays a battle-tested general who trains an army of female warriors who must protect their kingdom against a new enemy. As if Viola Davis needs any further praise, we discuss her critically acclaimed performance in The Woman King as Nanisca, and speculate as to why the film didn't get as much shine during this year's awards season.
