Director: Deniz Gamze Ergüven • Turkey, Germany
At the start of this stark, meditative drama that recalls The Virgin Suicides, five sisters play in the sea with their male classmates. As punishment for such immoral behavior, the grandmother and uncle raising the girls imprison them at home to maintain their “purity” until marriage. Submission or defiance seem to be the only options, as each sister, one by one, finds her own personal escape route.
