Mustang ★★★½

Harrowing account of five teenage girls in rural Turkey and how their life in an oppressive household grows worse as they grow older -- and more aware of their sexuality -- has numerous parallels to The Virgin Suicides, but comes to resemble a straight thriller much more than Sofia Coppola's film... and has a number of moments of jolting, unexpected wit. It's all a bit simplistic in some ways, but the performances by the young cast are deeply affecting.
