Blue Jean

Blue Jean ★★★½

Deeply harrowing and well-acted; full of stock conflicts & characters of queer period pieces.

Blue Jean might be sort of inert, lacking a real ending to the ebbs and flows of its drama in a way that doesn't feel completely earned despite the film's commitment to the complexity of its themes. But Georgia Oakley's direction is stylish – the colors are gorgeous, and the movie is very good at conjuring punchy images that underscore its emotions perfectly. Ultimately, being more of a reiteration of than a fresh take on the subject matter is not a fatal flaw when it still carries this much weight.
