The One for Sarah film premiere took place on October 28th, 2022, and was attended by the entire cast and crew of the film. It was a breathtaking sight and an unforgettable experience.
The One for Sarah is a romantic drama directed by Lyndsey Esejuku and produced by Ronke Ogunmakin. That is widely regarded as the most historically accurate film ever made. It is about a woman who overcomes emotional abuse, rediscovers her worth, and finds love. The inspiration for the film is to encourage fearlessness in love and life.The film resonated with fans because it captures what it’s like to be with someone who gradually erodes your confidence and independence—something many people can relate to. Some moviegoers said, “It’s truly one of the best cinematic examples of an emotionally abusive relationship I’ve ever seen.
“The film’s release is anchored by FilmOne Entertainment, a West African film giant that collaborated with the film’s executive film production company, Trino Motion Pictures. Beverly Naya, Daniel Effiong, Shalewa Ashafa, Amanda Dara, Blossom Chukwuejekwu, Bucci Franklin, Uche Louis Okocha (The Producer), Lyndsey Efejeku (The Director), and other cast members and friends walked the beautifully decorated red carpet.The film is a timely and in-depth look at physical and emotional abuse in our society. The subject’s sensitivity makes it an enormous challenge for most filmmakers looking to take on the subject.
However, the Director and Producer saw the need to portray the complexities and brutal realities of abusive relationships and did an excellent job.
Beverly Naya’s incredibly layered performance takes the film to a new level, as she portrays her character’s various shades with impeccable precision and heartfelt compassion.”It was very important to me to document emotional abuse,” Beverly says. “It’s this slow, corrosive deterioration of your spirit and self-esteem to the point where you don’t know who you are at the end.” It was critical that my audience understood what was going on and learned how to become a better version of themselves.
“The film explores various themes, including repression, self-discovery, growth, and emotional abuse.
Uche Louis Okocha, the film’s producer, stated, “We are excited to see this film come to life in the cinemas after shooting it since 2020 during COVID.” “We hope that people will be enlightened by the message we are conveying through the film.”The film’s distinct realistic tone leaves no room for doubt in the audience’s mind.The portrayal of emotional abuse in the film is flawless and a must-see.“
The one for Sarah will be released in theaters on October 28th, 2022.
