Help Support Rebecca St. James’ New Movie!

June 3rd, 2013 by

A Strange Brand of Happiness Movie, Starring Rebecca St. James

Grammy Award-winning singer and successful waiter-till-marriage Rebecca St. James is staring in a new romantic comedy, and she needs your help to get wide distribution. If lots of us pre-order tickets, she’ll be able to show her movie in more theaters. Plus you get free bonus gifts for pre-ordering, and the tickets are cheaper when you pre-order them.

What’s the movie about?

After losing his job, David’s roommate pushes him to hire a life coach named Joyce (Rebecca St. James). David agrees to hire Joyce partially because he wants to find himself, but mainly because he thinks Joyce is pretty. When Joyce invites David to join a volunteer group at a retirement home, David discovers that his manipulative ex-boss, William, is part of the volunteer group (and also romantically interested in Joyce).

The retirees at the home instantly recognize the potential for drama in David, Joyce, and William’s love triangle. After a wily old man goads David and William into battling for Joyce, David begrudgingly agrees to attend an open mic night that Joyce hosts for people to ponder the existence of God. It’s there that a poet says something that reverberates deeply in David’s wandering heart, and moves him closer to finding himself (and maybe closer to winning the battle for Joyce as well).

    Nice. But I dont live in The USA

    @Anon – Hmm. Welp, I’m pretty sure you can still cash-in on the free rewards. So you could think of it more like a Kickstarter campaign, where you donate to help something worthwhile succeed, and get a nice “thank you” gift in return. You could even donate your ticket to somebody you like in our community so it doesn’t go to waste (and you’ll probably make a new friend).

    it would be cool if they made an RPG game out of this as a dating simulator too for the ps3 with the movie on the same blue ray after this hits theatres. I know I’ll shell out $39 for it.
