About the Movie

Early 90s, in Tbilisi, the capital of the newly independent Georgia after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The country is immersed in violence--there's a war on the Black Sea coast in Abkhazia, and vigilante justice plagues society. But for Eka and Natia, fourteen-year-old inseparable friends, life just unfolds in the street, at school, with friends or Eka's elder sister. Although they are already dealing with men's dominance, early marriage and disillusioned love, for these two girls in bloom, life just goes on.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The excellent new drama In Bloom, Georgia's Oscar entry in the foreign-language category, has the heartbreak and hope of a country slipped inside a coming-of age-story of two 14-year-old girls. – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Feb 6, 2014

Fresh: Despite the seeming inevitability of tragedy and despair, "In Bloom" remains true to its title. – Peter Keough, Boston Globe, Apr 17, 2014

Fresh: The viewer becomes keenly aware that she is only getting part of the story. But when the truth is so troubling, sometimes part of the story is more than enough. – Stephanie Merry, Washington Post, Jun 26, 2014

Fresh: Directors Nana Ekvtimshvili and Simon Gross adopt the long, contemplative takes of the new wave; much of the film feels familiar, but the location shooting and period details are nicely drawn, a result of Ekvtimshvili's autobiographical script. – Drew Hunt, Chicago Reader, Dec 19, 2014

Amazing Movie

A very good slice of life, it's both relaxed and intense at the same time. It's also rich in symbolism if you like to read into things, but still good even if you don't. I knew nothing about Georgia before I bought this, but for some strange reason I was drawn to watch the preview and read about it. If this sounds like you, go ahead and buy it for sure, you won't regret it.
