On Saturday 14th December 2019, the management of the Silverbird Cinemas inside the Accra Mall had to open emergency exits from the cinema halls for patrons to vacate the premises after watching the movie ‘The Perfect Picture’. This was to avoid the human traffic that had built up at the entrance of the Silverbird Cinemas by fans eager to see the new film from Sparrow Studios. The writer and director of ‘The Perfect Picture’ movie, Shirley Frimpong Manso, described the film as a true reflection of the various classes in Ghana and their everyday lifestyle and challenges.
Despite the premiere of the movie ‘The Perfect Picture’ on the 1st of December 2019 at the Labadi Beach Hotel in Accra, people still came out in their numbers on Saturday 14th December 2019 to watch the movie at its opening at the Silverbird Cinemas at the Accra Mall. In an exclusive interview with Shine Publications, Ghanaian filmmaker Shirley Frimpong Manso debunked the perception that her films do not target the average Ghanaian and explained why her new film ‘The Perfect Picture’ should be seen by everyone. “There are so many aspects in Ghana. There are very educated Ghanaians and not so educated Ghanaians as well as affluent Ghanaians and others who struggle to make ends meet. When you watch ‘The Perfect Picture’, it tackles every single aspect of Ghana and not just one side”, she said. She added that the story was a well written story that everyone could relate to.
‘The Perfect Picture’ movie features a host of Ghanaian and Nigerian top actors namely Richard Mofe Damijo, Adjetey Anang, Lydia Forson, Joselyn Dumas, among others. The movie is scheduled for another premiere in Nigeria this month. ‘The Perfect Picture’ is a sequel to the previous movie also titled ‘The Perfect Picture’ hence, the full description as ‘The Perfect Picture’ Ten years later’. The film illustrates the development in the lives of the lead characters in the movie over a period of ten years. ‘The Perfect Picture’ is currently showing at the Silverbird Cinemas at both the Accra and West Hills Mall in Ghana.
