SYNOPSIS

Goldie is a star – well, not quite yet, but at least in the eyes of her little sisters Sherrie and Supreme she is. The rest of the world is bound to take note soon too. Her big break surely awaits, she’s just got to pick up that golden fur coat she’s had her eye on first. And land a role as a dancer in a hip-hop video. And keep child welfare services from separating her from Sherrie and Supreme, after their mother is locked up. Holding onto those dreams isn’t easy when fate has placed such daunting obstacles in her path. With Goldie, Dutch director Sam de Jong has delivered a real New York film: raw and glamorous, unflinchingly realistic and relentlessly optimistic, with a ton of heart and at least as much attitude.

WORDS FROM PROGRAMMERS

"With Goldie, Dutch director Sam de Jong has delivered a real New York film: raw and glamorous, unflinchingly realistic and relentlessly optimistic, with a ton of heart and at least as much attitude." Berlinale

"Colourful opening film by Sam de Jong (Prins) about Goldie, the headstrong, feisty teenager who fights te keep her sisters with her after their mother has been arrested. Sprinkled with a healthy dose of glamour, this film shows the stark reality of a girl who has few options, and yet still seems to have near-infinite power, bravura and persistence." Movies That Matter

"Young Dutch filmmaker Sam de Jong brings a boisterous energy to his second feature, beautifully blending scenes of playful fantasy with moments of social realism to portray the gulf between dreams and harsh reality. The bittersweet tale is full of hope, yet it also acknowledges the precariousness of Goldie pinning all her hopes on one fleeting opportunity." Melbourne Film Festival

"Faisant écho à l’histoire vraie de Silk Woods avec une vitalité cinématographique incontournable, Goldie emporte tout sur son passage, entre couleurs pop, clip musicaux et de brillantes idées de mise-en-scène." Festival Intl du Film de la Roche-Sur-Yon

PRESS QUOTES

"Sam De Jong’s portrait of an irrepressible New York teenager is as spirited as the central character and should find a welcome in global festivals and territories with an audience for gritty, big-hearted American independent cinema." VARIETY

"Model Slick Woods Delivers a Breakout Debut in a Scrappy New York Story. Full of attitude and bursting with scrappy New York style, Sam de Jong's second feature explodes with energy and hope." INDIEWIRE
