Storyline

Dita heeft nooit moeder willen worden, maar wordt door omstandigheden gedwongen om zich over de twee dochters van haar vriendin te ontfermen: de kleine druktemaker Mia en de opstandige tiener Vanesa. De drie sterke persoonlijkheden botsen flink, maar tegen alle verwachtingen in groeien ze uit tot een hecht gezin dat moet knokken om bij elkaar te kunnen blijven. Veelgeprezen Macedonisch-Australische regisseur Goran Stolevski bewijst met dit eerlijke en unieke portret dat familie zowel biologisch als zelfgekozen kan zijn.

Winnaar van de Queer Lion op het Filmfestival van Venetië 2023. Macedonische Oscar-inzending 2024.

'When I heard 'In corpore sano' by queen Konstrakta I knew this was going to be a five stars film'

‘Sad news forces a diverse group of friends to take unorthodox action in this volatile, affecting drama.’

 

‘Dzada Selim as 5-year-old Mia is an absolute scene-stealer

Goran Stolevski’s third major feature film, Housekeeping For Beginners, is gritty, dark, funny, and emotionally intelligent — and quite possibly destined for an Oscar. 

‘Housekeeping For Beginners’: Venice Review

‘… a phenomenal achievement – an untamed, densely detailed drama that crackles with so much feral energy, you practically get a static shock from the screen.’

'sometimes family is a lesbian mother, her gay husband, his lover, their daughters and three lesbian goths. and that’s valid' ★★★★★

Love comes out on top in ‘Housekeeping for Beginners’

Writer and director Goran Stolevski gives us an atypical family portrait that’s brilliantly political without being preachy, loving without being maudlin and epic by being specifically tiny.

LGBTQ Family Drama Hits the Mark

The North Macedonia’s submission for last year’s Oscars follows a LGBTQ+ collective forced to keep their ranks together after a mother becomes terminally ill.

'finalmente un film che mi rappresenta in quanto donna lesbica (avevo in corpore sano come canzone più ascoltata l’anno scorso)' ★★★★★
