COOL KIDS DON'T CRY tells the story of Akkie, a spirited young girl, who loves soccer, even though her classmate Joep thinks that soccer is not meant for girls. When she is diagnosed with leukemia, she remains optimistic. She even continues interfering with the school soccer tournament while she is lying in the hospital. But when Akkie’s health deteriorates so much she is no longer able to participate in the tournament, Joep comes up with a really special plan.
The Golden/Platinum/Diamond Film Award is an initiative presented by the Netherlands Film Festival and the Netherlands Film Fund since 2001. The prize is intended to encourage the Dutch film industry and motivate the general public to go and see Dutch films. The total number of tickets sold after a film’s release determines whether a prize is awarded.
COOL KIDS DON'T CRY is produced by Rinkel Film and Bijker, in co-production with Living Stone (BE). The film is distributed in the Netherlands by Dutch Filmworks and is screening at 103 cinemas at the moment.
