Critically acclaimed novel, "And Yet, You Still Chose Me," will be made into a movie, with full release to theaters in 2012. Directed by independent film-maker Perla Faye Humphrey, this raw and riveting account of a young girl's difficult journey through life will surely be as compelling and irresistible as the novel itself, inspired by co-author Kimberly Ray's life story.

PR9.NET September 21, 2010 - Atlanta, GA - Onyx Pearl is pleased to announce the feature film adaptation of the novel "And Yet, You Still Chose Me", by co-author Kimberly Ray, will be filmed in Savannah next summer. The 1980s era drama will be directed by Perla Faye Humphrey. No stranger to dramatic material, Humphrey has produced and directed the award winning features "Unforgiven Sins" and "7 Days of Yellow", both filmed in Atlanta, Georgia.

Set in a poverty-stricken small town near Savannah, the film follows the life of Shelley MacDonald, a naive little girl with big dreams of going to college. But one dreadful night, the unimaginable takes place that spirals her innocent world into mayhem, rips her family apart, and catapults her on a self-destructive journey into womanhood as the barriers to a better life stack against her, and going to college becomes an elusive goal.

Principal photography for the film is scheduled to begin in May/June of 2011.
Casting for the film will be held in Savannah, Georgia on October 2 & 3, 2010; Atlanta, Georgia on October 30 & 31, 2010; and Los Angeles, California on November 13 & 14, 2010.
