Blue Jean (Oakley, 2022): Prince Charles Cinema, 6.15pm

66th LONDON FILM FESTIVAL (5th - 16th October 2022) DAY 11

Every day (from October 5th to October 16th) I will be selecting the London Film Festival choices you have a chance to get tickets for and the movies you are unlikely to see in London very soon unless you go to see them at the Festival. Here is the LFF's main website for the general information you need. Don't worry if some of the recommended films are sold out by the time you read this as there are always some tickets on offer which go on sale 30 minutes before each screening.

This film also screens at BFI Southbank on October 8th and Curzon Soho on October 15th.You can find all the details here.

BFI review:
Jean is a woman living a double life: by day she’s a PE teacher, while at night she frequents a local lesbian bar with her friends and long-term partner. Adept at keeping her two lives separate, Jean’s world is rocked with the arrival of a new student who could destroy the veneer that she has successfully maintained. With a gorgeous, naturalistic central performance by Rosy McEwan, Blue Jean is an intimate character study of a woman unsure of how she wants to be – or is allowed to be – perceived in her own life. It’s an ode to queer resilience in the not-too-distant past and a timely reminder of the ways in which queer people are still silenced today.
