Set in a remote Turkish village, this Oscar-nominated drama depicts the lives of five orphaned sisters and the challenges they face growing up as girls in a conservative community. Longing to have their own freedom, they are forbidden by their elders to have any contact with the outside world, in particular with boys.
Turkish-born French director Deniz Gamze Ergüven balances out the film’s bleakness with unexpected humour and warmth to create this tender and fresh coming-of-age film.
