It was my absolute pleasure to meet WordPress readers Abbi and her husband Paul for drinks and blog-related chat. Those familiar with Abbi’s blog will know her as funny, entertaining and engaging, and in person she was no different. A very fun few hours. She’s even promised to bring some of her heavenly-sounding mint choc-chip cookies next time. In tribute to meeting my first blogger, I am doing a quiz on films set in South Africa, Abbi’s birthplace and home until she moved to London over 10 years ago. Feel free to suggest any other films set in South Africa that have captured your attention. A special shout-out to South Africans and fab WordPressers Natasha and Nadine too.
The film below was originally in the quiz, instead of Film 6. It was taken out for reasons seen below. You’re more than welcome to answer it all the same.
1. Zulu (1964)
2. Cry Freedom (1987)
3. The Power of One (1992)
4. District 9 (2009 – September)
5. Invictus (2009 – December)
6. Chappie (2015)
Original/Bonus: Blood Diamond (2009 – September)
