Lewes Film ClubNominated for best foreign language film at the 88th Academy Awards and featuring a beautiful soundtrack by Warren Ellis; Mustang is a touching and engaging tale of five sisters (beautifully acted by an unknown cast) reconciling their feelings of rebellion and self-empowerment against their parents more conservative attitudes as they grow up in modern Turkey. Described by some as ‘The Virgin Suicides in Anatolia’, Mustang has already proven itself as a must see film and a stunning debut by Deniz Ergüven.
