Hollywood in my Huis (2015)

Synopsis

A coming-of-age romantic comedy set against the backdrop of a 2004 matric dance in South Africa, Hollywood in my Huis follows an ordinary teenage girl – Jana van Tonder – who lives in an impoverished railway neighbourhood with her dysfunctional parents. When she witnesses Charlize Theron’s iconic Oscar win, Jana is inspired to transform her upcoming Matric Dance into her very own Hollywood red carpet moment.

Meanwhile, Jana’s secret crush, Brandon, the school’s tennis champ, breaks off his relationship with Angelique, the school’s most popular girl. Just as Jana is mustering the courage to ask Brandon to the dance, her best friend and boy-next-door, Frikkie, reveals his true feelings for her. With the matric dance less than a month away, with some guidance from her parents and fairy godmother, Suzy, Jana has to make the difficult choice between her closest friend and her dream date.
