Movie Info

Seyi, a 24-year-old Nigerian-American, works on Wall Street. Desperate to succeed because of his outsider status-due to class and race-he commits a crime, insider trading, which brings his entire world crashing down on him. Seyi's troubled circumstances force him finally to confront his tumultuous relationship with his ailing father, his romantic relationship with his privileged white girlfriend, and his racial and immigrant backgrounds-with nothing less at stake for him than his soul.

Critic Reviews for The Price

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (7)

Sure, it's an ages-old dilemma and there are moments that feel very much like a first film. But the strong lead performance by Aml Ameen ("Sense8") lends shading and depth to Onah's story.

But the complex overall themes here are dealt with in such abrupt fashion that their treatment ultimately feels superficial. Still, you can hardly indict Onah for trying to make complex themes briskly palatable.

Dara Ju doesn't feel groundbreaking, but it feels lived-in and genuine.
