Film Movement offers "haves" a look at the world of inner-city "have-nots" by releasing the "Precious" style 2019 drama "Goldie" on DVD. The more relatable message is showing how things can quickly fall apart for anyone,
The following Movement trailer for "Goldie" provides a good sense of the urban sense and sensibility of the film.
The day of our titular teen begins on a high note at a community center talent show. Her downward spiral commences on her mother being arrested soon after Goldie returns home. This triggers the flight of Goldie and her much younger sisters Sherrie and Supreme that is a central theme of the film. Another underlying story is the quest of Goldie for a full-length bright-yellow furry coat that proves that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
An early adventure is the only low point in this film that minimally will make viewers sympathize with the leading lady. Goldie arriving at the department store where she works only to quickly get fired and then lead security guards on an absurd chase through the aisles of the store that likely will provokes such as "is this Scooby (very bad word) Doo?"
Goldie then does her best both to find a temporary home for his sisters and to keep the family together; This effort is a major source of the aforementioned good feelings towards Goldie. This campaign leads her through the typical interconnected worlds of drugs and men sexually exploiting vulnerable women.
A related quest is starring in a hip hop video that Goldie figuratively sees as a ticket to living the good life in Westchester with her teacher.
The bigger picture this time is that even "have-nots" that have it better than Goldie will appreciate that they could have it worse.
Movement supplements this with the similar themed "We Love Moses." This coming-of-age movie tells the tale of the relationship between a young outsider teen and the friend of her older brother.
