Top Hollywood Actor Adewale Akinnuoye Agbaje has been making giant strides in the movie industry – from starring in top movies including The Mummy Returns, Suicide Squad among others to now writing and directing his own movie Farming starring Genevieve Nnaji, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Damson Idris.

The movie which premiered last Saturday at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival is one of the films in the Discovery section for this year and the script was developed at the Sundance Film Institute and chronicles his own coming-of-age story growing up fostered by a white working-class family in the U.K.

According to TIFF, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje uses his own life as inspiration for his feature film directorial debut which is about a London-born Nigerian child voluntarily placed in a white working-class home as part of a 1960s social experiment, stranding him between cultures and sending him through adolescence on a twisting journey from destructive self-loathing to perseverance.

Making press rounds at the Toronto Internation Film Festival 2018, the actor cum director has been spotted in some dapper looks and we could help but gush over his crisp look for the premiere of his movie, a well-tailored iridescent dark red suit which he styled differently for two events, switching from a grey shirt and matching necktie to a white shirt and a purple polka dot shirt.
