The Perfect Picture, A Shirley Frimpong-Manso Film

Watch out Nollywood, Shirley Frimpong-Manso is putting Ghanaian filmmakers on the map, and in a big way! Her release, The Perfect Picture, is a love story woven around the lives of three friends. What does a woman do when she finds out after marriage that, she cannot get a sexual reaction from her husband? What does a young woman, who finally decides to settle down with only one man do when she realizes that she is not the only woman in her man’s life?And what does a successful career woman do when her heart is split between a successful business tycoon and poor air-condition mechanic? The answers to these are carefully woven into the lives of these three friends and they unfold with humorous and unexpected outcomes in The Perfect Picture.

In what appears a perfect life, the three beautiful young women in The Perfect Picture make bold attempts to change their lives even when destiny plays its joke on them. With a marriage that seems almost doomed from the beginning, to an affair with an unlikely person and the endless pursuit of love, the three friends will learn the harsh lessons of life, the challenges of marriage, the fatality of falling in love and the rewards of having a good laugh in the midst of sorrow.

The Perfect Picture stars Jackie Appiah, Lydia Forson, Naa Ashorkor Mensah-Doku, Adjetey Annang, Nana Kwame Osei Sarpong with Chris Attoh and introducing Kweku Sintim-Misa. MIMI will have more about The Perfect Picture in an upcoming issue. In the meantime, get all the details at:

I don't mind if the movie has some clique scenes because I find that even in Hollywood, Nollywood and Bollywood, movies are recycled over and over again but we still pay to watch them because of the different perspectives. I definitely i'm interested in watching the movie.
