Two troubled marriages intertwine thanks to a child’s illness.


Paul had a marriage laced with strife because of familial interference. His mother constantly pressured him to have a male child with his wife.  They already had a daughter but African traditions dictated that it wasn’t enough. 

Paul’s work at a foundation for disabled children made him grateful for his healthy daughter and he was content with life but little did he know life was about to erupt due to dark secrets that his wife harbored from her past. 

In a separate storyline, Adesua (Ini Edo) was stuck in a marriage to Femi (Femi Adebayo). He was an egotistical and unreasonable man that refused to let her work. In a moment of rage, he threw her out of their home when their son was ill and needed surgery. 

The two storylines merged when Adesua was referred to Paul’s foundation for help with her son’s illness. Paul arranged for doctors abroad to operate and while they waited for travel documents to arrive, Adesua temporarily lived with Paul and his family. 

Things heated up when it appeared that Paul and Adesua had more than a business relationship and past secrets surfaced. 

Let’s Talk. This is a drama that consisted of many things. There were troubled marriages at the forefront and the challenges of disabled children as the backdrop. 

The story illustrated that there are exceedingly talented children that are ill and it expressed the importance of discovering their talent and developing it whether they’re disabled or not. 

The story also offered some marriage counseling. Both marriages walked the tightrope of divorce but the filmmakers used the virtue of forgiveness to keep the couples in tact. 

The problem with this movie was that it was a bit melodramatic. There was excessive yelling and some of the situations were simply over the top. The conclusion had too many coincidences and there were parts that were very predictable. 

Performances were adequate and so was the production quality. 

Overall, this movie won’t rock your world but it does score points for its subtle messages. RECOMMEND
