New This Weekend: I Used to Be Funny and In A Violent Nature

Closes July 13
🇬🇧 Rated 95% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes

England, 1988 — Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative government is about to pass a law stigmatizing gays and lesbians, forcing Jean, a gym teacher, to live a double life. As pressure mounts from all sides, the arrival of a new girl at school catalyzes a crisis that will challenge Jean to her core.

Blue Jean is a non-judgmental tale of self-acceptance, intergenerational solidarity and sapphic power.

Time Out

Oakley’s brilliant film offers hope to anyone who doesn’t feel they fit in and are trapped in a hostile environment.
