A stylish premiere for Leading Lady

Leading ladyThe South African Premiere of Leading Lady was a glamorous event, filled with good food and wine, a star studded guest list, fun activities and the screening of an amazing film.

Ster-Kinekor Cedar Square hosted the South African Premiere of Dark Matter Studios’ brand new film, Leading Lady, on the evening of November 13th 2014. Sponsors and service providers were there early to set up, decorate and pack goodie bags to ensure that everything was ready for this big evening, which everyone had been looking forward to for months.

Star Burst Promotions’ Alishia van Deventer and Gizela Arndts were the organizers behind this glamorous event and the function was a huge success. Boer & Brit supplied the drinks throughout the evening, while Maroela Media and BELLA Magazine (the media sponsors) were on the red carpet doing interviews for their social network platforms.

The guest list included local talent and cast, Brümilda van Rensburg, Bok van Blerk, Jana Strydom, Carien Botha and many more, as well as the international star, Gil Bellows (best known for his roles in The Shawshank Redemption, Ally McBeal and The Agency) who is also a cast member. Other well-known celebrities on the red carpet included the likes of Bouwer Bosch, Leandie du Randt, Hanna Grobler, Tobie Cronje, Je-ani Swiegelaar, Sandra Vaughn, Corine du Toit, Sonja Herholdt, Ivan Zimmerman, Andre Stolz, Llewellyn Greeff, Henk Pretorius, Matthew Mole, Altus Theart, Zetske van Pletzen, Ciske Kruger, Quanita Adams, Sarahann Doherty, Nadia Valvekens, Nadia Beukes and many more.

The highlight of the evening was the screening of the movie that South Africa has been talking about for months. Leading Lady tells the story of an aspiring British actress, Jodi Rutherford, who decides to travel to Brandfort in South Africa to prepare for a role, as an Afrikaans War heroin, that she wants to portray in a big up and coming film. Here she meets Kobus Willemse and his family and persuades them to let her live with them for a couple of weeks in exchange for her participation in their local ‘konsert’. She quickly learns that there is more to Kobus than his rugged exterior and that the things she once believed would make her happy, were not meant to be in the end. It is a charming and humorous love story, filled with important lessons that will most definitely capture the hearts of audiences here and across the world.

Snap-Ease Boothtography is honoured to have been a part of this evening and hope that guests will cherish these special memories for years to come.

Leading Lady starts showing in theatres on November 28th 2014 and is definitely something not be missed. Here is the trailer:
