Movie Info & Cast


In Georgia Oakley's stunning directorial debut Blue Jean, it's 1988 England and Margaret Thatcher's Conservative government is about to pass a law stigmatizing gays and lesbians, forcing Jean (Rosy McEwen, in a powerhouse performance), a gym teacher, to live a double life. As pressure mounts from all sides, the arrival of a new student catalyzes a crisis that will challenge Jean to her core. The BAFTA-nominated film won the Venice Film Festival's People's Choice Award, as well as four British Independent Film Awards.

Oakley’s ability to find a hopeful spin to put on this bleak time is a history lesson for us all.

It's so rare in British cinema to see the L in LGBTQ+ up there in such bold type, which makes Blue Jean not only a biting look at this historical moment but a riveting act of redress.

Ultimately, Blue Jean is a non-judgmental tale of self-acceptance, intergenerational solidarity and sapphic power.
