In Bloom (15)


Set in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi in 1992. Friends Eka and Natia look to leave childhood behind as they ignore societal customs and work to escape their turbulent family lives.

The critical consensus

Unpredictable, never forced, and forever compelling.

****(*)Mike McCahill, The Guardian, 01/05/2014

The subject matter may seem heavy but the film has an extraordinary lightness of touch, with moments of astutely observed comedy giving way to defiant displays of dance beneath the overarching shadow of looming unrest.

****(*)Mark Kermode, The Observer, 04/05/2014

Nana Ekvtimishvili draws from her own memories to craft an assured film.

****(*)Curtis Woloschuk, Total Film, 02/05/2014

An invigorating but never hectoring film about the violent route to female empowerment.

****(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 01/05/2014

The two nonprofessional actresses shine.
