Marsha Stephanie Blake is having a great year.
The narrative thrust of Goldie is a music video, and it’s shot like one too. Writer/Director Sam de Jong’s Tribeca entry follows an 18-year-old on the run in the Bronx, determined to keep her younger sisters beyond the grasp of Child Protective Services and make it to set for her first appearance as a backup dancer. The push-and-pull between Goldie’s daily struggles and the joyousness of her dreams gives the movie its structure. At its best, Goldie is a celebration of dreaming, of the future, more glamorous self young artists hold inside of them.
