Dirty Beauty follows the story of a set of twins (Alexx Ekubo and Mercy Macjoe) who didn’t know their father for years. Eventually, they discovered who their father is, and had to battle with their step sister for his attention.
The twins’ step sister (Onyii Alex) is a spoilt brat who caused the death of their father (Tony Umez) after he catches her in the act of lesbianism.
Directed by Okey Ifeanyi, Dirty Beauty stars Alexx Ekubo, Mercy Macjoe, Rachel Oniga, Tony Umez, Onyii Alex, and Kelvin Ikeduba.
The story is an interesting one, the writer tried to weave several stories into one beautiful plot and it worked. A drunk groom sleeps with another woman on his bachelor’s eve, finds out years after that she had twins for him. The male twin’s fiancee comes to work in his house as a maid hence the discovery is made. His spoilt daughter from his marriage practices lesbianism, on discovering this, he draws closer to his long lost twins.
Some of the actors brought in their A-game. Onyii Alexx portrayed the spoilt brat lesbian who always gets what she wants. Rachel Oniga gave a face to the poor character who had to singlehandedly raise her kids. Mercy Macjoe perfectly portrayed the ghetto raised female who knows how to physically defend herself.
- As much as the actors in this movie tried to bring their A-game, there were dry scenes, Alexx Ekubo’s quick acceptance of their father spoilt the expected reaction. There was also very little chemistry between Alexx Ekubo and his supposed fiancee in the movie.
- Picture Quality
The picture quality of this movie is far from being perfect, some scenes had inadequate lighting.
