Shirley Frimpong-Manso, a film writer/director/producer is emerging as the biggest force to reckon with in terms of quality Ghanaian movies. She has already produced two amazing movies that have enjoyed critical and commercial success across Africa, Europe and North America. She stunned movie buffs with the amazing picture and story quality of ‘Life and Living It’, and confirmed her grasp on the industry with the much-talked drama, ‘Scorned’, a movie about a woman fighting to keep her sanity in a marriage of abuse. The lead actress in that movie, Lydia Forson has been nominated for the most promising actor award in the 2009 Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA).
Well, Shirley and her Sparrow Productions outfit have done it again with her new romantic comedy titled, ‘The Perfect Picture’. The perfect picture offers a colourful and humorous insight into a fairy tale world where everything is as perfect as your life and that of your friends.
In what seems like a perfect life, three beautiful young women make bold attempts to change their lives even when destiny plays its joke on them. With a marriage that seems almost doomed from the beginning, to an affair with an unlikely candidate and the endless pursuit of love, the three friends will learn the harsh lessons of life, the challenges of marriage, the fatality of falling in love and the rewards of having a good laugh in the mist of sorrow.
What does a woman do when he finds out after marriage that, she cannot get a sexual reaction from her husband? What does a young woman, who finally decides to settle down with only one man do when she realizes that she is not the only woman in her man’s life?
And what does a successful career woman do when her heart is split between a successful business tycoon and poor air-condition mechanist? The answers to these are carefully woven into the lives of these three friends and they unfold with humorous and unexpected outcomes.
‘The Perfect Picture’ stars Jackie Appiah, Lydia Forson, Naa Ashorkor Mensah-Doku, Adjetey Annang, Nana Kwame Osei Sarpong with Chris Attoh and introducing Kweku Sintim-Misa.
