Our take

One of the most successful foreign-language debut features of recent times, Deniz Gamze Ergüven’s Academy Award®-nominated tale of five tenacious sisters is intelligently personal and political. Scored by Warren Ellis, this new coming-of-age classic mines the tension between tradition and progress.
