Award-winning director and producer Shirley Frimpong Manso is out with a new movie, “Rebecca” ; starring Joseph Benjamin and Yvonne Okoro.The movie will premiere in the UK at the Odeon Cinema, Bugsbys way, London on the 22nd of January 2016.
Rebecca recently got two Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards (AMVCA) nominations for Best Director and Best Picture Editor.
Rebecca is the story of an egoistic city guy who finds himself abandoned and lost in the middle of a deserted road. He is forced to marry his only companion, a timid looking village girl, only to realise she is anything but ordinary.
“I woke up and the conversation still continued,” said Shirley Frimpong Manso while talking about the movie.
“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.”
