Where to watch The Woman King

Looking back at 2022, one film that should’ve had more of a cultural impact than it did was The Woman King. The period epic was a box-office success, grossing over $93 million on an estimated $50 million budget. However, The Woman King was unexpectedly shut out at the Oscars, receiving zero nominations. In five years, society will look back and realize its mistake as The Woman King will have a long shelf life on streaming.

Set in the 1800s, The Woman King follows an all-female warrior unit in the West African kingdom of Dahomey. The highly skilled fighters are led by General Nanisca (Air’s Viola Davis), who is training the next generation of warriors. When a new enemy threatens the livelihood of Dahomey, General Nanisca must prepare her warriors for their biggest fight ever. Lashana Lynch (No Time to Die), Sheila Atim (Pinocchio), Hero Fiennes Tiffin (After Ever Happy), Thuso Mbedu (The Underground Railroad), and John Boyega (Breaking) round out the ensemble.
