In 1988, the Government's clause 28 aimed to prohibit the promotion of homosexuality in schools. Unintended consequences, then, for teacher Jean in this tender film described as a future queer classic, a remarkable debut feature from Georgia Oakley.

“Rosy McEwen absolutely shines in what should be a star-making turn as a lesbian PE teacher struggling to keep her queerness secret as Section 28 starts to ramp up.”
“It’s a remarkably accomplished picture on every level, not least the keenly felt and fiercely authentic performances.”
