GHANA’S DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES RETURN AFTER 10 YEARS!

The Perfect Picture is perhaps Ghana’s most popular romantic comedy. Released in 2009, the movie centred around three women in their 30s going through a mid-life crisis and breaking points that would change their lives forever.

 

 

Upon the release by Film Director Shirley Frimpong-Manso, it became a huge box office success in Ghana and abroad.

Sparrow Pictures is now taking a huge risk that blew up on the faces of movies like Bridget Jones: a sequel. The company has high hopes as the first movie had cliffhangers that could be expanded into the sequel.

Also, bringing back old memories will intrigue many people. 

It was 2010 when the movie received an Africa Movie Academy Award; however, it was rumoured that there was a disagreement between the three ladies as to who would keep the award.
