Elizabeth!

Ireti Doyle as Elizabeth

My name is Elizabeth and I’m in my late forties to early fifties (I don’t want to give too much away). Here’s my dilemma, I have a daughter who I absolutely adore and love with my whole heart but she has distanced herself from me, in fact she has lost all respect for me simply because I desire and date younger men. I understand that it can be awkward for her to have a mother who dates men her age but I can’t control what my heart and body want, abi?

What should I do? Give up what makes me happy in order to get close to my daughter again, or live my life how I want? After all I only have one life to live, right?

Elizabeth is played by Ireti Doyle in the EbonyLife Film production of FIFTY, executively produced by Mo Abudu. Will you sympathize with Elizabeth or blame her for her situation? Watch the MUST-SEE film this December to live the situation with her.

‘FIFTY’ stars four of Nigeria’s power actresses including Ireti Doyle, Dakore Egbuson-Akande, Omoni Oboli and Nse Ikpe-Etim. What is the premise behind the film? Well, in the words of the executive producer herself, Mo Abudu it is to “showcase African women coming of age, loaded with increasingly similar aspirations and dilemmas faced by their contemporaries everywhere, while yet navigating unresolved traditions and obligations”.

The Grand Premiere of FIFTY comes up on Sunday 13th December 2015 at Eko Hotel and Suites and will be in cinemas nationwide on December 18th December 2015.

Tickets for the Grand Premiere are limited, so book your ticket(s) now!

      Lowkey the most comical part of your whole rant is the “This isnt screen life, lady…ds is d real life” line. Errrrrrrrr awkward moment,this is “Screen life” as you put it. Its a movie character…as we say here “READIING IS FUNDAMENTAL”. Relax is should never be that serious.

    My personal opinion: do what makes you happy. If regaining your relationship with your daughter would make u happy, so be it.

    Nevertheless, I don’t think children, especially an adult should govern the parent’s life. she should have respected her mother’s choice, even if she isn’t comfortable with it.

    The character I’m most interested in is Omoni Oboli’s character, getting pregnant for a married man at fifty. What was she thinking? How would it end?

    Looking forward to watching FIFTY

    Shoo! Whoevr u ar, i feel ur style! Give it to her front and back. Just in case her pure english has problems, her ‘broken’ english shouldn’t. Bitter, but truthful point made @seeU

    As to the question and dilemma of the Elizabeth character, it is quite simple. If life is too short and the only determinants of our actions and inactions are what “makes me happy” (the new excuse for irresponsible and/or deviant behaviour) then you are on track. Make yourself happy since you cannot control what your heart of body wants. Your daughter also has the right to make herself happy by distancing herself from you since she cannot also control (or control) how she feels about your behaviour. Your behaviour (which you know is “morally wrong”) is making her unhappy.

    Self discipline and “acceptable standards” of behaviour require sacrifice for the general good. if you daughter was dating old and/or married men either serially or simultaneously, am sure you would have something to say to correct that form of behaviour which I suppose “would be making her happy”.

    To say that you cannot control what your heart or body wants (inspire of the effect on your daughter) shows that you lack self discipline and cannot be a good mother.
