Dinata’s latest film stint, Three Sassy Sisters, pays homage and puts a modern twist to the 1956 musical classic, Tiga Dara. Featuring catchy musical numbers, the film reimagines the lead characters from housewives into career-oriented professionals, as it highlights their  strengths and individuality as modern women within the confines of traditional family values. Dinata’s previous films, The Courtesan (2002) and Love for Share (2006) had been previously submitted to the Academy Awards under the Best Foreign Language Film category.
