De 18-jarige Goldie woont in New York en droomt ervan door te breken in de entertainment business door als hiphop-danseres te verschijnen in een videoclip.

De weg naar het gedroomde succes is vol tegenslagen maar de eigenzinnige Goldie laat zich daardoor niet uit het veld slaan. Het beroemde model Slick Woods speelt de hoofdrol en maakt met de film haar acteerdebuut. Goldie is de nieuwe film van Sam de Jong die in 2015 debuteerde met de veelgeprezen film Prins. De film is een volledig Amerikaanse productie en ging in wereldpremière tijdens de laatste editie van het Internationale Filmfestival van Berlijn.

This movie is in English.

Colourful 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.

Goldie is a star... Well, maybe she still has a way to go, but she is a star in the eyes of her younger sisters. And if it is up to them, it will not take long before the rest of the world knows her name. She is just waiting for her big break. Meanwhile, she considers it her mission in life to keep her sisters out of the hands of the authorities. With so many obstacles in front of her, it is not easy for this ambitious teenager to fulfil her dreams, but she simply refuses to give up. A film that is full of power, attitude and optimism, while depicting the raw reality of underprivileged children in disadvantaged neighbourhoods in the USA.
