Goliat is set in a small industrial town somewhere in Sweden. When Roland is sentenced to prison, his son, 17-year old Kimmie, is expected to provide for the family by taking over his dad's criminal business. This is a task he's not ready for. The film's depicting a boy's brutal entry into adult life and examines aspects of social heritage and patriarchal structures, at a time when the welfare is declining and Sweden is changing.Written by
This is the first acting role for Sebastian Ljungblad. He was nominated for the award for the best actor at the Golden Beetle (the national Swedish film awards), but could not attend the ceremony due to being wanted by the police for robbing the elderly. See more »
In the drama genre Goliat isn't a bad movie. It's not really my favorite genre of movies but this one was certainly watchable. I don't know anybody of the Swedish actors but they all did a very believable job, each character added something to the story. A story that is entertaining enough, it has a good pace, not much action but the evolution and the desperation of the main character is worth watching. It's all well made, simple but effective, with a good cast so good enough to watch once.
