Stolen, Housekeeping for Beginners, What Jennifer Did

Movie 1: Stolen

This is a really well done Swedish drama set in the beautiful north of the country. Local towns folk are killing reindeer from the indigenous Sami people. The underlying conflict is about fighting for justice and indigenous rights. Gorgeous cinematography. Language is Northern Sami, but we watched the dubbed English version. On Netflix.


Movie 2: Housekeeping for Beginners

Set in North Macedonia, this comedy/drama centers around a diverse household of Roma (Gypsy) and LGBTQ young people dealing with child custody. This movie alternates between depressing and joyous, while depicting everyday life. Having returned from North Macedonia just last month, we can attest to the unsettling attitudes between the Christian Orthodox and Muslim populations. And any gay presence there is totally non-existent. The star of this movie is the young child. In Macedonian with English subtitles.


Movie 3: What Jennifer Did

This is a Netflix murder-for-hire documentary/drama about a young Canadian women and what happens to her and her parents during a home invasion. Based on actual events, with real news footage and police interviews, this is an interesting murder story.
