HOUSEKEEPING FOR BEGINNERS - NewFest

Reluctant Dita cares for her girlfriend's kids and a group of outcasts, forging an unconventional family

Description

Dita never wanted to be a mother, but circumstances force her to raise her girlfriend’s two daughters: tiny troublemaker Mia and rebellious teen Vanesa. With the addition of a few local queer folks in need of refuge, her house becomes a shelter of sorts for outcasts.

A battle of wills ensues as Dita and the kids continue to butt heads and become an unlikely family that must fight to stay together. From acclaimed NewFest alum Goran Stolevski (OF AN AGE), this winner of Venice’s illustrious Queer Lion award is at its core a story about the universal truths of family — both the ones we’re born into and the ones we find for ourselves.
