Pretty Red Dress

Directed by Dionne Edwards

Travis has just been released from prison and it quickly becomes apparent that everything’s changed while he’s been gone. While girlfriend Candice is on the up and auditioning to star in a musical, daughter Kenisha is struggling in school and her relationship with her mum is tense. So, when Travis buys Candice her dream dress for an audition, rather than smoothing over the family’s problems, it ends up creating even more… As secrets and desires left unsaid threaten to spill out, Travis is forced to re-examine who he is and how he wants to be perceived in the world.

In her skillfully directed first feature, Dionne Edwards crafts an uplifting family drama soundtracked by Tina Turner hits that will instantly fall into the canon of iconic London films.

Following a preview event this film will be on general release from Friday 16 June.

"..this is an intensely likable film with a trio of great performances."
