#TIFF19: “SWEETNESS IN THE BELLY”
Review by Amanda Gilmore for Mr. Will Wong
When Lily (Dakota Fanning) arrives in London, England as a refugee she begins searching for the man she loves with the hope he ended up there too.
This Story centers on one woman trying to find the man she loves in a foreign city interweaves many prominent issues happening in our world today. Although the Film takes place in the 1970s, it touches on how the poor treatment of refugees in camps, race relations, and more. It also showcases tender performances from Fanning and Wunmi Mosaku who plays a fellow refugee expecting her second child.
Sweetness In The Belly screens at TIFF on Sat, Sep 7 at Scotiabank Theatre at 6 PM and Mon, Sep 9 at Scotiabank Theatre at 4:15 PM.
