Five free-spirited sisters live with their grandparents in rural Turkey. After an innocent romp with boys on the beach, violating the harsh strictures of their society, they are imprisoned in the house. Instead of lessons at school, there are "wife lessons," bars on the windows, and meetings with prospective husbands. The girls manage to sneak away, but the walls close in. Ultimately, their heroism lies simply in being themselves and in making noise against the confines of their culture. 2015, Turkey/France/Qatar/Germany, 97 minutes, in Turkish with English sub-titles
Official entry from France to the 2016 Academy Awards.
"It's a moving portrait of sisterhood, a celebration of a fierce femininity and a damning indictment of patriarchal systems that seek to destroy and control this spirit." Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times
