Sedona News – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of “Blue Jean” showing June 30-July 6 at the Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatre.
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.
