The Story

Hollywood in my Huis is a coming-of-age romantic comedy set against the backdrop of a 2004 matric dance in South Africa.

The story focuses on 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.

Die Storie

Hollywood in my Huis is ‘n romantiese komedie met sterk liefdesdriehoekelemte, wat afspeel tydens 2004 se matriekafskeid in Suid Afrika. Dit handel oor ‘n doodgewone tiener meisie – Jana van Tonder – wat aan die ‘verkeerde kant’ van die treinspoor saam met haar disfunksionele ouers bly. Dis wanneer Charlize Theron die Oscar wen, dat Jana geinspireer word om die opkomende matriekafskeid in haar eie “Hollywood Red Carpet” glansgeleentheid te omskep!

Intussen verbreek Jana se geheime crush; Brandon, die skool se hartebreker en tenniskampioen, sy verhouding met Angelique – die skool se gewildste meisie. Jana moet nou die moed bymekaarskraap om hom na die dans toe te vra, maar dis net dan wanneer Frikkie – haar beste pel – besluit om sy ware gevoelens vir haar te wys.

Die matriekafskeid is net ‘n maand weg en Jana het ‘n moeilike besluit om te maak tussen haar beste pel… en haar droomkêrel.
