British writer-director Georgia Oakley’s frank, searing and beautifully photographed debut follows a lesbian teacher facing homophobia at a pivotal point in British history.
England, 1988: Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative government is about to pass Section 28, a law stigmatising homosexuality in education and forcing Jean, a P.E. teacher at a secondary school in the north-east, to live a double life. It’s crucial her employers don’t find out she’s gay, but at the same time, the secrecy is alienating her from her own life. As pressure mounts, the arrival of a new girl at Jean’s school precipitates a crisis that challenges her to her core.
