Being an excellent student and very fond of physics, the guy decides to save his native village from starvation. In the library he finds scientific books on physics. He studied the books and the guy got an idea to build a wind generator.Written by
An outstanding Oscar-worthy film about an incredible true-story.
Wow, what a refreshing change from all the Hollywood blockbusters! A true-story about the real-life William Kamkwamba's determination to save his village from starvation.
This film was perfect in every aspect. Chiwetel Ejiofor hit this one out of the ball-park with his directing (debut), writing (debut), and acting.
The entire setting/visuals were incredible and the cinematography could not have been any better. The sound/score perfect. The young Maxwell Simba as William was stellar in his first ever acting role. The entire cast was excellent.
I'm not a fan of slow paced or long movies, by the 113 mins just flew by as I was in such awe with the story, visuals and acting.
I sure hope this film is nominated for the 2020 Oscars in many categories. This is one of those must-see rare gems that will open people eyes on how great we all have it in the modern world - unable to decide which iPhone to buy, while others are struggling to eat.
See this film, it will move you... it's outstanding! A perfect well deserved 10/10 from me.
