Actor, director and Lagos lawmaker Desmond Elliot, in collaboration with producers Anita Odia and Chinney Love Eze, are set to take a new movie, ‘The Silver Spoon’ to the cinema on Friday, September 22, 2017.
The movie which stars Wole Ojo, Yvonne Jegede and Jennifer Eliogu among other cast tells the story of a spoilt but bright hardworking and serious minded girl of 24 years, Ella Henshaw who is to take over the family business. However, she met a disgruntled job seeker, Segun, played by Wole Ojo who finally gets a job in her company and discovers that the job was not what he expected.
Wole Ojo said young people can connect with the movie. “One of the unique things about ‘The Silver Spoon’ is in its storytelling,” said Ojo.
“A normal story told from a different point of view. It’s a really educative and relatable movie which a lot of young people out there can connect with. I think it is definitely a must watch.”
Yvonne Jegede who played the role of Sade in the movie said: “Through this movie I learnt that finding and staying true to oneself is really important. It is a genuinely well written and educating movie that would reach out and connect with everyone.”
Jennifer Eliogu who played the mother of Ellen Henshaw described the movie as simple.
“I have been involved in so many movies and most times I play the role of a mother and I have lots of fun doing that but for me the simplicity of this movie did it, there are no complications, just a great story and the fact that it preaches love sets it apart from the usual stories.”
The Silver Spoon heads to every cinema nationwide come September 22nd, 2017.
