Dionne has come a long way since winning the prestigious FFP group competition as a shy 17-year-old, and has forged a successsul professional singing career, as well as writing and releasing a number of critically acclaimed tracks.

The Last Love Letter, the first of a trilogy from actor, writer and director Simon Gillespie, was shot with no budget, and relied on the commitment and passion of a number of volunteers and businesses to make it to the big screen.

The plot follows the life of Steve Brody (played by Gillespie), a fireman, who has a dark secret from his past which is now coming back to haunt him – with a vengeance.

His life is falling apart and shady stranger John Abbott (Craig Seath) promises to bring some equilibrium to his misery, however, he has a malevolent agenda that will bring about the unhinged Steve’s destruction.

It’s a mix of murder, mayhem and humour and was well received by the packed audience at the premiere.
