Los Angeles, CA – Vision Films is set to release Romantic Comedy film A Date with Miss Fortune this February, with select theatrical screenings in the USA handled by First Pond Entertainment, and Canada through Northern Banner, from February 5th, and across the USA on DVD and VOD February 9th 2016.

Starring real life married couple – A Date with Miss Fortune writer/producers Ryan K. Scott and Jeannette Sousa – alongside Joaquim de Almeida (Our Brand is Crisis, Clear and Present Danger),Vik Sahay (American Reunion) and Grammy Award-winning recording artist Nelly Furtado, the film is a heart-warming tale directed by John L’Ecuyer, in the vein of hit films such as My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Meet the Parents, about how cultural traditions clash with true love.

A struggling writer (Scott) meets a superstitious Portuguese beauty (Sousa), with no idea that his life and luck are both about to change… if only the two of them can overcome their families’ cultural differences… A Date with Miss Fortune is a vibrant, romantic and laugh-out-loud story about passion, destiny, and modern cross-cultural relationships.

Jeannette Sousa says: “I think the reason people are finding A Date with Miss Fortune so funny and relatable is because it is inspired by our real life cross-cultural relationship.”

Ryan K. Scott adds: “It’s a Romantic Comedy that both women and men can enjoy. It was important for us to show both perspectives.”

“A Date with Miss Fortune” releases in the USA and Canada following a successful theatrical release in Portugal and a positive first showing at the annual American Film Market in November.

Managing Director /CEO of Vision Films, Lise Romanoff says: “A Date with Miss Fortune is a very special, heart-warming treat for Valentine’s Day.  The leads are so charming, and its universal story of love, cultural differences and acceptance will appeal to the entire family!”

A Date with Miss Fortune will release in select theaters as well as on DVD and VOD across the USA for Valentines Day 2016.
