Multiple Award winning director and producer Shirley Frimpong Manso’s new movie Rebecca starring Joseph Benjamin and Yvonne Okoro will premiere in the UK at the Odeon Cinema, Bugsbys way, London on January 22, 2016.
Rebecca recently got two Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards (AMVCA) nominations for Best Director and Best Picture Editor.
“I woke up and the conversation still continued. It was the strangest few hours as I heard two voices chatter in my head. Rebecca has the strongest dialogue I have ever written. After Joseph Benjamin read the script, he sent a text immediately… ‘Hmmm Shirley, what was going through your mind when you were writing this script?’ I texted back ‘ I let my mind take me to places’. I hope Rebecca takes everyone to that unique place,” said Shirley Frimpong Manso.
Abandoned and lost in the middle of a deserted road, an egotistic proper city guy gets a rude awakening when he begins to realize that his only companion, a timid looking village girl who he had been forced to marry only a few hours earlier is anything but ordinary.
