Netherlands, 2016, Dutch, with English sub-titles, Director: Job Gosschalk, 91 minutes

Our socially awkward heroine takes her first tentative steps toward independence and fulfilling a lifelong dream, in the Dutch romantic dramedy Moos. Ever since her mother’s death, Moos finds herself caught between caring for her grieving father and having a life of her own. Her father wants her to take over the family textile business in a tight-knit Jewish neighborhood of Amsterdam. Moos wants to become an actress, grabbing the opportunity to apply to respectable s performing arts academy.

When her audition fails, she settles for working at the school cafeteria, while taking private singing lessons. Romantic entanglements develop with her handsome vocal teacher complicated by feelings for childhood best friend Sam who has returned home from service in the Israeli army. Balancing her family’s low expectations of her against her own pride and determination to make something of herself, Moos reveals an inner strength few suspected she possessed. Suffused with warmth and brimming with beguiling characters, director Job Gosschalk’s heartwarming charmer portrays a heroine’s quest to find her own uniquely beautiful voice.
