Netflix has unveiled a teaser trailer for the first Dutch Netflix original film, titled Forever Rich, the second feature by Dutch filmmaker Shady El-Hamus. The film tells the story of Richie, who wants to be rich and famous, and his journey to becoming the greatest rap artist in the Netherlands.
One evening he is violently robbed by a group of teens and loses his most prized possession: an expensive watch. When images of the humiliating robbery go viral, his hard-earned reputation is damaged. Can Richie restore his image or will this be the end of his career? He decides to risk everything to polish his status again.
This stars Jonas Smulders as Richie, with Daniel Kolf, Sinem Kavus, Hadewych Minis, Yootha Wong-Loi-Sing, Mustafa Duygulu, and Yassin Dardour. It looks like a clever twist on the story of learning that not everything is about money and fame.
Netflix will debut Shady El-Hamus’ Forever Rich streaming starting October 1st, 2021 this fall.
