      It’s not always about looks but also delivery. Kerry Washington fits the role very well especially her exposure to politics. Jennifer Hudson fits more into dramatic singing roles. This is an informative movie, a story that shaped American politics when it comes to women and sexual assault.

    Wow! I remember the proceedings was it on CNN then but my take home from it all was “I’ve heard enough lies” and it was in the courtroom as I remember. In fact, I have been using that line ever since. Oh well, the whole drama was adapted for TV. C. Thomas was eventually confirmed!

    Kerry Washington is going to deliver. Nollywood should learn to bring more of our escapades to the big screen.
