Ghosted film review – a new British romantic comedy

London Independent Pictures announce the award-winning new film, GHOSTED. 

Daniel Pacquette directs this highly anticipated, topical romantic comedy (As Bad As Me, Magnificent Dribble, Due Dating) and is written by, produced and starring Jade Asha (The Intent, Villain, Badness, Due Dating). 

Ghosted has already garnered 12 awards, including the Hollywood Gold Award for Best Indie Feature, the New York Movie Awards for Indie Feature Silver Award, the Cinematic European Film Festival award for Best Actress and the Anatolian Film Awards for Best Actress and Best Comedy.

Ghosted embraces the much-loved values of a traditional romantic comedy but with a relatable modern-day twist.

The film is based on true events in lead actress, writer & producer Jade Asha’s life and is described as ‘Fleabag meets Annie Hall’. Jade says: Every time I went through yet another breakup, I would turn to a romcom to reassure myself that I wasn’t the only one going through this torment. I decided to turn my experiences into a film in the hope that I could help others. I also wanted to create relatable characters; British, diverse, and with money struggles – like the people in my world.”

The film focuses on Mercy, who returns to the dating scene after a bad breakup.

Ghosted film review – a new British romantic comedy
A film about choosing yourself first
This indie film proved a great way to spend a Saturday night at one of my favourite cinemas in London. The Ghosted black-tie film premiere had quite the turnout and told the story of a woman who was caught into between two love interests. The main protagonist Mercy does what many of us have done before. She abandons herself to pursue a man, compromising her standards, friendships, career and self-respect. You can't seek happiness and validation in others; throughout the film, you see Mercy learn her most valuable lesson. That she needs to love herself first.
