“I need the money… I got big plans!” Film Movement has unveiled a trailer for indie drama Goldie, which first premiered at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year and also played at the Movies That Matter Film Festival and Tribeca Film Festival. Made by Dutch filmmaker Sam de Jong, the film stars Slick Woods as the titular character. 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. Also with George Sample III, Danny Hoch, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Jazmyn C Dorsey, Khris Davis, Edwina Findley Dickerson, and Alanna Renee Tyler-Tompkins. Described as “raw and glamorous, unflinchingly realistic and relentlessly optimistic, with a ton of heart and at least as much attitude.” Enjoy.
