Too Lickrish Will Satisfy

A film which is bound to take the ‘dry season’ by storm is the movie Too Lickrish starring Seth “Xcel” Bovell and Ryanne McKay. The film is being directed by Tolga Akcayli – a qualified Olympic swimmer and filmmaker known for competing in the 2012 Summer Olympics and directing the touching 2017 ballet story, Remembering Her.

Too Lickrish, which is clearly the Barbados slang of “too licorish – a word you will only find in the urban dictionary which simply means ‘to be extremely greedy’. The movie has been teased with short behind the scenes clips and a teaser trailer which shows lead actors Seth and Ryanne down on their luck and having to turn to a con-man lifestyle to get them out of being broke. Things suddenly spiral out of control as new faces are introduced and the attention they garner may be too much to handle.

Seth Bovell, who has been no stranger to the cameras, has been making himself known for years though his music, his skits and his unique spin on promoting companies and products. He has also played other roles in films such as Stockton Miller’s Action-film DayBreak and Porgie & Murda’s Unusual Suspects.

Other actors and familiar faces spotted in the trailer are Chris Man RK, known for his entertaining question videos on Instagram and Facebook, Treybreezy Cumberbatch, another well-known entertainer and Daba Davisual who has also been in quite a few other films made in Barbados.

The film has no specific release date as yet, but it’s set to be in theaters this dry season, which puts it around the months of June through November. If anything is for certain, it’s that this cast and director has never failed to disappoint, and this is one film that you won’t want to miss.
