Listen to the interview below:
Even though it's a chick-flick, those are stories and challenges that people face. I saw myself in those characters.— Thabiso Moleya, movie director
For me, the most important thing became approaching the character with integrity from both the book and the script.— Mmabatho Monthso, lead actress
We [South Africans] don't understand the culture of opening weekend. Opening weekend determines how long we survive on circuit.— Thabiso Moleya, movie director
It was an honour to be part of a project that had two powerful women involved in the inception of the story.— Mmabatho Monthso, lead actress
