Academy Award-winning filmmaker Anthony Minghella teams with Oscar-nominated screenwriter Richard Curtis to adapt author Alexander McCall Smith's best-selling series of novels in this film concerning Botswana's only female-owned detective agency. The first feature film shot entirely in the south-central African country of Botswana, The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency follows seasoned sleuth Precious Ramotswe (Jill Scott) as she investigates cases, assists the locals in solving various personal problems, and falls for the prominent owner of a successful garage. Anika Noni Rose co-stars as Ramotswe's quirky assistant, Mma Makutsi, in a feature intended to spark a full series.
