ATM’s Impressive Run Continues: Selected For Denton Black Film Festival



Lancelot Oduwa Imasuen's ATM (Authentic Tentative Marriage) is leaping beyond bounds as it has scored another major achievement with its official selection at The Denton Black
Film Festival which is set to hold in January 2017.


The movie which was also screened at the Capital City black Film Festival at
 Austin Texas in August 2016, had more than 8 weeks impressive run in
 Nigerian cinemas after its official release on Friday May 13, 2016. A run
 which saw the comedy flick winning the Best Comedy Film at the 2016 Abuja
 International Film Festival and 2 nominations from the Best Of Nollywood
 awards, coming up later this year at Umuahia in Abia State.



 Also, within these periods, ATM was a darling of so many major foreign media
 as some of the leading media houses like CNN, BenTV and other major British
 stations because of the presence of British born actress, Claire Edun also
 known as Oyinbo Princess, who featured in it with a comprehensive review of
 the hilarious comedy movie.

ATM, is a romantic comedy which stirred Robinson, (Alex Ekubor) a young
jobless man in his late 20s who met a white lady, Emilia ( Oyinbo Princess)
via online dating and started extorting money from her in pretense that he
was going to marry her. Meanwhile, he has a Nigerian girlfriend, Caroline,
(Yvonne Jegede) who has been very supportive and taking care of him and his
uncle Gbenga (Francis Odega).

Francis fell for his brother's caprices when he told him about his plan to
make the 'Oyinbo' lady her ATM, by marrying her and divorce her after six
months in other to inherit her wealth and marry his Naija girlfriend,
Caroline.

But when Emilia arrived Nigeria, Robinson got the shock of his life...
According to Lancelot, "ATM has surpassed all expectations of a typical
Nollywood movie with a good story line, theme and characters.

In the movie, Claire Edun also known as Oyinbo Princess, clearly and undoubtedly excelled in her first movie appearance in Nigeria."
