Directed by Screen Star of Tomorrow Dionne Edwards and humming with the energy of iconic Tina Turner hits, PRETTY RED DRESS follows a family tested to their limit when Travis, fresh out of jail, is found wearing a dress by his partner Candice.
The film tells the story of a South London family’s relationship with the same red dress. For Candice (Alexandra Burke), it’s her audition outfit to play Tina Turner in a fictional musical and a ticket to a different life. For daughter Kenisha, it’s symbolic of a kind of traditional femininity that she feels alienated by. For Travis (Natey Jones), it’s both a secret and a source of liberation. One day when he is discovered wearing the dress, it tests family bonds to their limit.
