The most anticipated movie is about to hit our big screens.

The multi-award winning novel ‘Happiness is a Four-Letter Word‘ by Cynthia Jele is set to be out in cinemas on 19th February and is directed by Thabang Moleya.

The cast of the movie includes Mmabatho Montsho as Nandi, Khanyi Mbau as Zaza and Renate Stuurman as Princess.

Renate told SunBuzz that the movie is about three friends who live in Joburg, who are going through a phase of finding love and happiness in the City of Gold and with her being one of the leading characters it’s exciting to play as Princess.

“It seems I attract the type of characters like her who are sceptical about love. She’s been burned before and tries to keep guys at arm’s length. When she is in a relationship she wants to control everything,” she said.

She believes women will be able to relate to the movie because in any friendship, the characters are different and can relate to each other differently.

The movie also features male cast members by the likes of Chris Attoh, James van Heldinge, Terence Bridget, Richard Lukunku, Tongay Chirisa, Daniel Hadebe and Hlomla Dandala.
