Blue Jean

1h 37m Drama, LGBT+ 2022
NZIFF2023

AroView: Rosy McEwen gives a riveting performance as a closeted lesbian P.E. teacher in Thatcher’s Britain in this drama that feels like it could have (and should have) been made in the early 1980’s, but wasn’t.

Under this shroud of conservatism, Rosy McEwen as Jean lives in Newcastle in constant negotiation with a culture that seems micro-aggressive at best, but the real pressure comes down from her attempts to keep her private and professional life separate. This genuine reflection of an LGBT experience also shines a harsh light on not-such-enlightened times for the rest of us who lived through it.

“A supremely accomplished debut feature from writer-director Georgia Oakley, Blue Jean captures a specific moment in British history with almost uncanny accuracy.” ~Wendy Ide, The Observer

“Ultimately, Blue Jean is a non-judgmental tale of self-acceptance, intergenerational solidarity and sapphic power.” ~Hanna Flint, Time Out
