Film Summary: When five sisters take an innocent walk on the beach with a few male friends, things get blown way out of proportion in this affecting drama set in northern Turkey. The girls’ conservative grandmother cracks down, confining them to a home that becomes a prison/wife factory – but these young women have a spirit that refuses to be broken. Buoyed by superb performances (all the more impressive given this is the feature debut of Ergüven and most of her lead actresses), MUSTANG is as powerful as it is timely.
What the critics are saying:
“What makes the transfixing film so effective is that the director refuses to portray [the girls] simplistically, as misunderstood angels, and she has enough trust in her audience to leave the drama’s implicit feminism unstated.”
