Pretty Red Dress

British filmmaker and screenwriter Dionne Edwards’ likeable, big-hearted feature debut spins an exhilarating story out of the unexpected effect of a pretty red dress. X-Factor winner and recording star Alexandra Burke plays a South London singer, Candice, who is hoping to land the role of a lifetime in a big musical. But in her personal life, she has problems: her grumpy teenage daughter is in trouble at school, and her partner Travis, played by theatre actor Natey Jones, is just out of prison on licence. Travis’s purchase for Candice of a gorgeous red dress for her audition leads to even more problems for them all.
