In a remote Turkish village, five orphaned teenage sisters live with their conservative grandmother and uncle. After an entirely innocent encounter with a group of boys, the girls find themselves living under lock and key and forced into arranged marriages. Beautifully shot and performed, this Oscar-nominated feminist drama is both a rousing tale of spirited youth and a powerful work of social cinema.

‘With its rooted sense of place and community, and rebellious spirit, this is an accomplished and engaging debut.’

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
