Jackie Golden Film
May 25, 2012
JACKIE has reached the status of Golden Film. Over 100.000 tickets have been sold already since the film’s release in Dutch cinemas on May 10.
JACKIE is about the twin sisters Sofie and Daan (33) who have been raised by their two fathers. When they receive an unexpected phone call from their- hitherto unknown- biological mother in the US (Jackie) they embark on an amazing adventure that alters their assumptions about everything that they once believed to be true. The trip with the strange and ill adjusted Jackie will change Sofie’s and Daan’s life for good.
The film stars the sisters Carice and Jelka van Houten and the American Oscar-winning actress Holly Hunter. JACKIE is directed by Antoinette Beumer, written by Marnie Blok and Karen van Holst and produced by Eyeworks Film & TV Drama.
The Golden/Platinum/Diamond Film Award is awarded when the number of tickets sold after a film’s release is 100.000, 400.000, and 1.000.000 respectively. The prize is an initiative presented by the Netherlands Film Festival and the Netherlands Film Fund since 2001 and is intended to encourage the Dutch film industry and motivate the general public to go and see Dutch films.
The film is distributed in the Netherlands by Benelux Film Distributors and is screening in 100 national cinemas at the moment.
