In Georgia Oakley’s quiet and soulful drama, a closeted PE teacher reckons with her identity during the introduction of a stigmatising law to Thatcherite Britain.

By day Jean (Rosy McEwen) is a PE teacher, while at night she frequents a local lesbian bar with her friends and long-term partner. Adept at keeping her two lives separate, Jean’s world is rocked with the arrival of a new student who could destroy the veneer that she has successfully maintained.

With a gorgeous, naturalistic central performance by McEwen, Blue Jean is an intimate character study of a woman unsure of how she wants to be – or is allowed to be – perceived in her own life. It’s an ode to queer resilience in the not-too-distant past and a timely reminder of the ways in which queer people are still silenced today.

“Timeless… Georgia Oakley’s outstanding debut is a must-watch” ★★★★★ - Loud and Clear
