I honestly think one of the best aspects of Netflix is being able to see films from other countries that you wouldn’t otherwise have access to. It’s led me to Indian, Korean, Italian, Spanish, French, German (etc) films and shows that are just so wonderful but have never been widely available in the country I’m in until Netflix made it so. (Yay Netflix!)
Today I watched a wonderful Nigerian film, Isoken, and now I’m going to be digging through all the offerings to see what other Nigerian films are on offer in my region! This one was great! It follows 34 year old Isoken in her search for love and meaning in her life whilst everyone around her is trying to push her towards marriage. She meets two men at the same time: one seemingly the perfect marriage candidate, yet the other one increasingly draws her attention.
If you’re looking for a sweet, uplifting movie about love, I definitely recommend this one!

I can’t bring myself to subscribe to Netflix – what with my Sky Cinema Pass and now Disney + on top of reading and the ‘work I’m actually paid to do’… I need more hours in the day! 😂 I would completely jump on board all of the international films though – hope you enjoy the next Nigerian watch!
