The First Grader, a Kenyan film we covered quite extensively on this site, from its theatrical release to DVD (it received a limited theatrical run in the USA last year via National Geographic, grossing a healthy $332,000), is now available on VOD, as I just learned.

So you can watch it right now, if you have a Netflix account, because it's streaming there. Yay!

The film was directed by Justin Chadwick, with Naomie Harris and Oliver Litondo in starring roles. Set in Kenya, the film (based on a true story) centers on an old villager (played by Litondo), who insists on attending school so he can learn to read, inspiring others around him to realize that it's never too late to dream.

Check out the trailer for the film below as a refresher, and then head over to Netflix, watch and enjoy:

    I really liked this film. It's definitely worth viewing while it's still available through streaming.
