In Georgia Oakley’s stunning directorial debut Blue Jean, it’s 1988 England, and Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative government is about to pass a law stigmatizing gays and lesbians, forcing Jean (Rosy McEwen, in a powerhouse performance), a gym teacher, to live a double life. As pressure mounts from all sides, the arrival of a new student catalyzes a crisis that will challenge Jean to her core. This NYT Critic’s Pick film won the Venice Film Festival’s People’s Choice Award, as well as four British Independent Film Awards.
