The Woman King, Viola Davis’ action-packed historical epic, is about to drop on Netflix – here’s what you need to know about how to watch the movie and what time it’ll be available on streaming.
In the “Greatest Movies Snubbed By The Academy” category at this year’s Oscars, The Woman King is the frontrunner.
Directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood with as much heart, soul, and craft as anything in this year’s Best Picture lineup, it tells the rousing story of the Agojie, an all-female warrior unit protecting Dahomey in the 1820s.
Its success wasn’t modest: bolstered by an impeccable cast, it garnered critical acclaim and raked in more than $90 million at the box office, with many believing it’d be a major awards contender. Nevertheless, it was snubbed.
