All Critics (3) | Top Critics (3)

While Nyong'o herself is engaging and genuinely invested in the things she learns, it's the stories of the people that are the most absorbing.

The last ten minutes of Warrior Women with Lupita Nyong'o proved an important corrective to the romantic, reverential stories that we had heard so far of the Agoji, a kick-ass army of women who fought for the Dahomey kingdom in Benin, west Africa.

Lupita Nyong'o is an apt choice of investigator as she travels to the Republic of Benin... Far from flaunting her star status, she puts many a self-regarding TV historian to shame with her unaffected charm and candour.
