Bona Fide Beauty
Bona Fide Beauty explores a young woman’s assumptions and beliefs tied to all relationships and the issues of connecting deeply with one’s own self. As an all female producing team, it’s important for us to give voice to women both on and off the screen. Join us in sharing this powerful message now.
About The Project
Chelsea Pearce is a contemporary choreographer who has everything to lose: her reputation, her only best friend and her sanity. Almost thirty and still single, Chelsea is a hot mess. She has no clue what she wants or who she really is. All she knows is that she doesn’t want to end up alone like her father. After giving up all hope, Chelsea meets Mr. Right. But, is it the right timing?
BONA FIDE BEAUTY, in Hollywood terms, is ‘Trainwreck’ meets ‘Saves The Last Dance.’ It was written to give myself permission to be me. Almost 30, single, career-oriented with hopes of a family in the future, I’ve struggled with creating a balance in my life. After chatting with a bunch of my girlfriends, I realized, I am not the only one! Plus, there are just too many hilarious dating scenarios that can’t go untold.
During the beginning phases of building my team, I pitched the idea of this script to many talented producers here in Austin. The core four females that you see before you today naturally gravitated and connected to the message of this film. We hope you do to.
