Another South African chick flick is on the way!
Now that we know South Africans are able to come out in droves to see a good local film even when it doesn’t involve a tortured girl who comes from KZN only to watch her ‘morals’ tragically bite the dust in unbelievably violent Jozi, it appears the powers that be have warmed up to the idea of showcasing the intricate narrative of love and relationships. Such is the case with Mrs Right Guy, a new local movie exploring the complex emotions and dilemmas of love as it functions against life as we have planned it in our delusional minds.
WATCH TRAILER BELOW
Gugu (Dineo Moeketsi) is a broken hearted young black woman whose ill fated history with love positions her as a scaredy who will reject any man long before they can get too close for fear of disappointment. She has exiled herself from the possibility of being in an authentically loving relationship because she has convinced herself that they all end in tatters.
But, and here’s where it gets interesting – “to find bliss with the right guy, she must first realise that no man is created equal and that, in love, nice guys not only have staying power but can be just right too.”
Well that is how the movie is described by the makers, we losers in love can not be out here making claims about appropriate conduct for love.
The movie stars Dineo Moeketsi,Thapelo Mokeona, Lehasa Moloi, Mpho Popps and Thando Thabethe amongst others.
WHO WILL LOVE IT?
Mrs Right Guy opens in local cinemas on the 3rd of June. Keep an eye!
