‘Two Smart’ starring Alison Hinds, George Gill and Saran Lashley: Movie Premiere, 17th July
Barbados’ first psychological thriller, “Two Smart”, will premiere at Olympus Theatres on Thursday, July 17th under the auspices of The Rotary Club of Barbados South. Featuring popular Soca Queen Alison Hinds, George Gill and Saran Lashley, “Two Smart” is about a disgruntled married couple and a hitchhiker who get trapped in a gully during a tropical storm.
Writer of this full-length feature movie Shakirah Bourne, explained her vision was to stage the entire story in a single intimate space to heighten the emotion and absorb the audience right into the action.
Shakirah stated, “I wanted to see if I could write a feature film that was set in one unconventional location with just three characters. This movie has multiple plot twists and will keep the audience in suspense down to the final scene. The catchphrase ‘You are never as clever as you think‘ is not only relevant to the plot, it is also a message to the audience to prepare to be outsmarted.”
Ricky Redman, who co-directed this movie with Bourne, said that in spite of this being their first time directing a full-length movie, they were excited and felt that they had achieved beyond their objectives. He described his first directing experience as rewarding because he was able to help Bourne to create and achieve her vision.
He continued, “At times I was like a bridge between the director of photography and the writer who also happened to be my co-director. We have the kind of synergy that allows us to create and effect remarkable results and working with dedicated and talented actors made this even better than we imagined. Their acting was so believable that at times we could not look away even though we knew the script inside out.”
Bourne and Redman further remarked that “Two Smart does not rely on special effects to captivate the audience like some other movies; instead we worked with the actors to bring out that passion and emotion to grip the audience and keep them in suspense throughout the entire experience. We literally cannot wait to see the reaction of the audience.”
The Rotary Club of Barbados South and Bajans In Motion Inc. encourage all Barbadians to come out to Olympus Theatres and show their support at the premiere of the movie “Two Smart” on Thursday, July 17th at 7:00 pm. Part proceeds are in aid of Charity.
