Foreign Film Friday: Mustang

2:00 pm to 4:00 pm in the Ruggaber Community Room, Lower Level

FROM TURKEY:  Five free-spirited teen-aged sisters splash about on the beach with their male classmates. Though their games are merely innocent fun, a neighbor reports what she considers to be illicit behavior. The family overreacts, removing all "instruments of corruption," like cell phones and computers, and essentially imprisoning the girls, subjecting them to endless lessons in housework in preparation for them to become brides. As the eldest sisters are married off, the younger ones bond together to avoid the same fate. The fierce love between them empowers them to rebel and chase a future where they can determine their own lives. Rated PG-13. No registration necessary. Sponsored by Jane and Bill Murray.
