Advance screening of 'The Rewrite'

A very big thank you to Ster Kinekor for inviting ROSA Johannesburg to view The Rewrite in advance of its release at their own private cinema in Sandton. We had a wonderful evening and everyone who attended loved the movie.

Here's what a few of our ROSA members had to say about it:

Thank you to Sterkinekor for inviting ROSA to the pre-screening of The Rewrite. The movie was hilarious. Hugh Grant is so droll and one is always well entertained by a movie with him in the lead. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

The movie was excellent, light-hearted comedy. I would recommend that they write "A Sequel to The Rewrite", or make it a "Series" as I love Hugh Grant's sense of humour. It would have been better if he had danced in the one part, instead of just watching the dancing.

Delightful! Humorous insights to the inner struggles of a writer…must see for any wanna be, still is or was writer…it will get you going again.

Very enjoyable story, also useful for aspiring writers. Go and see it when it comes on circuit.
