Film: Goldie

Dutch filmmaker Sam de Jong makes an impressive American debut with Goldie, about three sisters who try to stay out of the hands of the youth care system. Click here to read the interview with Sam de Jong in de NRC (in Dutch) and here to watch an excerpt.

Goldie, a precocious teenager in a family shelter, wages war against the system to keep her sisters together while she pursues her dreams of being a dancer. This is a story about displaced youth, ambition, and maintaining your spirit in the face of insurmountable obstacles.
