The Secret: Dare to Dream is a romantic drama based on the groundbreaking 2006 book by Rhonda Byrne which went on to become a global phenomenon, empowering millions of people to lead happier and more fulfilled lives. 

Directed by Andy Tennant (Sweet Home Alabama) it centres on Miranda Wells (Katie Holmes), a hard-working young widow struggling to raise three children on her own. 

A powerful storm brings a devastating challenge and a mysterious man, Bray Johnson (Josh Lucas), into her life.  In just a few short days, Bray's presence re-ignites the family's spirit, but he carries a secret—and that secret could change everything.

About the movie Katie says, "I think that audiences are going to connect to this film because it brings a lot of hope. Hope never goes out of style."

"Human behaviour is always mysterious and particularly when there is an attraction or connection involved," adds Lucas.


The film opens in SA cinemas, Friday 6 November.
