Ellis in Glamourland

Feature film, 2004, 100 min.

In the comedy Ellis in Glamourland, Linda de Mol plays the single mother Ellis who finds it hard to make ends meet. The former Miss Scheveningen lives in a working-class area in The Hague, has several lousy jobs and a nagging mother (Nelly Frijda). One day, Ellis gets an offer from Joan Collins (playing herself) to participate in the 'How to marry a millionaire' course. Along with her fellow course members, Ellis keeps Collins's pressing directions at the back of her mind and combs funerals, golf courses and cocktail parties in search of that one - rich - Mr. Right. In this newly discovered glamour land, Ellis is showered with gifts and attention. But eventually she is faced with the choice: money, security or true happiness. In the exuberant closing scene, her fellow course members, playing cheerful supporting parts, also turn out to have discovered the true sense of living.
