Mister Johnson

William Boyd on Mister Johnson

I have a feeling that Mr Johnson is the only feature film ever to have been shot in Nigeria. It’s based on the classic novel by Joyce Cary. Set in the 1920s, it tells the story of a Nigerian clerk who seems only capable of self- destructing. Funny and very moving. Directed by Bruce Beresford it stars Maynard Eziashi in the title role and an extremely good Pierce Brosnan (pre-Bond) as the district commissioner.
