Movie Info

Based on his own life story, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje's FARMING charts the extraordinary journey of a young Nigerian boy who is fostered (Farmed) out to a white couple, struggles to find an identity, and falls in with a skinhead gang in 1980's England. Told with brutal honesty, FARMING is an unflinching autobiographical portrait of a young man who must battle the odds and realize that, in a world of hate, his toughest battle will be learning to love himself.

The tone of the film is also unexpectedly lyrical -- like a fairytale, albeit grimmer than Grimm. Unrelieved horror and violence can be enervating, but this film has the benefit of truth, and a message of survival.

[A] provocative if slightly plodding movie...

Dishearteningly, Enitan's transition from lost soul to a scholar and now an artist gets shoved into the final minutes left over after all the bleakness. Akinnuoye-Agbaje's admirable life story gets reduced to its most sensational chapter.

Farming touches on the alienated experience of fostering and the culture shock of going back to Nigeria.

A less uncompromising film might give the withdrawn Enitan a way to articulate his trauma verbally, but it is here and now that Akinnuoye-Agbaje claims that voice.

October 9, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

This is movie terrain that's land-mined with potential clichés, and 'Farming' definitely steps on a few.
