It’s not about hair. It’s about identity.
Contrary to what the other reviewer says: I care. This film isnt just about a girl deciding between different hair styles, in fact it’s more than that. Dolapo is told that in order to succeed in her dream profession its “assimilation first” she must get rid of her afro and use a whiter sounding name. Yet when Dolapo tries to conform, using the name Dolly and buying herself a wig we find that her character is becoming more uncomfortable with the idea of conformation to the white-centric workplace. The film wants you empathise for the character as you want her to succeed but not at the cost at her own identity and in my opinion it succeeds in doing so, and especially thanks to Dojin Ajiboye’s acting.
In the end she must choose whether to follow the advice she was given by Daisy and conform or decide to stand out from the crowd and show off her true hair and heritage. This film is a very sweet and honest film with a lesson about identity at the heart of it. I would definitely recommend watching it and I’m excited to see more from the people involved!
Great coming of age story
Whether it’s your hair or something else, conforming to someone else’s ideal can be problematic, as we see in this story. Also the good camera work and acting made me want to stick around till the end.
