Pretty Red Dress (15)
Dionne Edwards’ intensely likeable, big-hearted feature debut spins an exhilarating story from the unexpected effect of a pretty red dress. Singer Candice (Alexandra Burke) is hoping to land her dream role in a big musical as Tina Turner. But in her personal life, she’s got problems; her grumpy teenage daughter is in trouble at school and her partner Travis is only just out of prison. Hoping to please, Travis buys Candice a dress for her audition, but the dress creates more problems as Travis finds himself grappling with masculinity and unspoken feelings. Tension builds and family life threatens to implode. A warm, funny, sensitive and insightful movie with toe-tapping soundtrack and a big performance from Burke.
