When I'm not screening piles of CVs

I'm at the movies or writing reviews

Trouvoete is a sweet, humorous family movie

The movie is a story of love, hurt and co-incidence, set in Cape Town and starring all S.A’s favourite stars.
Ella Gouws is a 30 year old marketing manager who has been unlucky in love and now keeps her distance from anyone who is likely to break her heart. She spends her evenings in the world of social media, using the nickname Natgrassterrekyker.

Dr Louis van Est is a doctor who is also suffering from a broken heart and also spends his evenings on social media, and he and Ella find solace in each other, sharing their hopes and dreams.
In the midst of this, Ella’s younger sister, a regular social butterfly gets married on Christmas day! Ella is drawn into the insanity of it all, and skilfully manages to hide her broken heart.
This all makes for a hysterically funny scenario and some unexpected surprises.
The dialogue is Afrikaans, with easy to follow English sub-titles.
Directed by Darrel Roodt, the movie releases on 18 December at cinemas countrywide.
A Christmas treat for the whole family!
