Layla Fourie is determined to find a job. „I need to make a living,“ she says and her honesty in the interview pays off. The casino manager employs her, but she still can’t buy her young son that bike he is riding around with in a supermarket. Layla Fourie is an honest and modest woman. Judging from her appearance, you might call her reserved or cool, but this façade only means that Layla is neither helpless, dependent on a man, nor emotionally unstable. Layla Fourie is the first of a series of this year’s exciting female film portraits that have powerful performances by little-known but outstanding actresses, such as Rayna Campbell.
