About the Movie

It’s the beginning of the summer. In a village in the north of Turkey, Lale and her four sisters come home from school, innocently playing with boys. The supposed debauchery of their games causes a scandal with unintended consequences. The family home slowly turns into a prison, classes on housework and cooking replace school, and marriages begin to be arranged. The five sisters, driven by the same desire for freedom, fight back against the limits imposed on them.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The story isn't particularly original, but Mustang's achievement is to criticize a society that sexualizes everything women do while still celebrating the girls' sexuality. – Elaine Teng, The New Republic, Feb 18, 2016

Fresh: Erguven's film, beautifully shot and beautifully performed, cuts its storybook tone with starker, more brutal truths. – Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, Jan 15, 2016

Fresh: That there are five sisters allows Erguven to explore the scenario's several possible outcomes, be it happy ending or tragedy or the bittersweet fates in between. – Nathalie Atkinson, Globe and Mail, Jan 15, 2016

Fresh: I won't tell you how it ends. I will say you should see for yourself. – Danny Leigh, Financial Times, Dec 27, 2016

Beautiful Oscar nominee , must see

I was lucky to see this great foreign film Oscar nominee for foreign language from France but film and spoken in turkish , awesome Performances , heartbreaking , the kind of film u forget ur watching a movie , looks so real like a documentary , must see

Simply amazing

This film is incredible; from the acting to the cinematography everything is incredible. The story is entirely too real as things like this happen to girls in Turkey and the region on a daily basis. I really like like I was living in the story as it is very emotional. I recommend this to anyone, regardless if you like subtitles or not, you can still pick up the story without reading every line.

Amazing Foreign Delight

Wow this film is well acted, really well written. Better than all other films I've seen recently!!
