Blue Jean is a powerful examination of the importance of community in the fight for equality. It is England, 1988 -- Margaret Thatcher's Conservative government is about to pass a law stigmatizing gays and lesbians, forcing Jean, a gym teacher to live a double life. The arrival of a new girl at school catalyzes a crisis that will challenge Jean to her core. Although this drama takes place in the past, the themes are timeless and universal. When your basic rights are threatened, no matter who you are, or how you live, or who you love, everything becomes political.
Featuring a stirring breakout performance from the luminous Rosy McEwan, “Blue Jean” grounds the political with the personal — without losing sight of queer joy. Jude Dry: Indiwire
