(2015) dir Deniz Gamze Ergüven w/Günes Sensoy, Doga Zeynap Doguslu, Elit Iscan, Tugba Sunguroglu, Ilayda Akdogan [97 min; DCP]
Early summer in a village in Northern Turkey. Five free-spirited sisters splash about on the beach with their male classmates. Though their games are merely innocent fun, a neighbor reports what she considers to be illicit behavior to the girls’ family. The family overreacts, essentially imprisoning the girls, and subjecting them to endless lessons in housework in preparation for them to become brides. As the older sisters are married off, the younger ones bond together. The fierce love between them empowers them to rebel and chase an independent future in Deniz Gamze Ergüven’s debut; a powerful portrait of female empowerment.
