After much anticipation from movie buffs, the blockbuster movie, ‘The Therapist’ is set to hit cinemas nationwide on March 26 this year, with screen diva Rita Dominic and Chidi Mokeme giving it a unique touch.

The Therapist is an intriguing story of the realities of some marriages and relationships which question the anomalies of the age-long concept.

According to the Producer, Esse Odometa, and the Director, Kayode Kasum, Nollywood is taking a deep dive into authentic storytelling and relevance as captured in the film.

Set in modern-day Nigeria, the plot tells a story of the lead character, Eloho Odafe who loses everything in a divorce to her abusive ex-husband after 11 years of marriage because of a prenup that was signed in the whims of love and affection.

The Therapist takes film enthusiasts on a ride of self-reflection on what is labelled as sacrifice and compromise in relationships and how far is too much.

“We also love that on a quest for revenge, the film highlights men who are also abused and manipulated and the fear of being emasculated has maintained the silence of it,” says Odometa.

Its comedic approach adds a breath of fresh air to the entire movie. The Therapist is a perfect story told by the right people at the most relevant time.

The Therapist stars actors like Anthony Monjaro, Michelle Dede, Saheed Balogun, Tope Tedela, Shaffy Bello, and Toyin Abraham among others.
