From the team that produced the box office hit MATERIAL, comes another film, a romantic comedy called TELL ME SWEET SOMETHING. Directed by Akin Omotoso and produced by Robbie Thorpe the film stars Nomzamo Mbatha (of Isibaya fame) in the title role as Moratiwa and actor/model Maps Maponyane as her love interest, Nat.
TELL ME SWEET SOMETHING tells the story of Moratiwa, an aspiring writer who owns and runs a bookstore in the heart of Johannesburg. The bookstore, like her love life, is not experiencing much success. This all changes when she meets and falls in love with the unlikeliest candidate in the world, Nat, a male model, who has never read a book in his life and is desperate to be loved for his mind not his body. Against the odds, they become romantically involved but then Sashi, Nat’s now pregnant ex-girlfriend, shows up and sets off a chain of romantic complications into motion.
TELL ME SWEET SOMETHING also stars Kagiso Lediga (Blitz Patrollie), Thomas Gumede (Otelo Burning), Thembi Seete (Hijack Stories), Mandisa Bardill (Man On Ground) and Thishiwe Ziqubu (Man On Ground). Executive produced by Mvest Media(a division of Mvest Group www.mvestgroup.com) Red Pepper Pictures, The National Film and Video Foundation, PANA TV and a team of Crowd Funders, TELL ME SWEET SOMETHING is a romantic, funny and moving film set in the heart of Johannesburg, shot on location in The Maboneng Precinct.
