The trailer has just been released for critically acclaimed ‘Blue Jean’, the debut film from director Georgia Oakley. Chris Roe has composed the score to the film which is set to premiere in cinemas Friday 10th February.
‘Blue Jean’ is set in 1988 and stars Rosy Mcewan as Jean, a PE teacher forced to live a double life.
‘Thatcher’s government have just passed a law that stereotypes lesbians and gays as paedophiles, recruiting children for their ‘deviant’ lifestyles. Female PE teachers are prime targets for homophobic accusations, and as a result, Jean is forced to lead a double life. During the week she’s a respected member of staff; on the weekend she slips surreptitiously into Newcastle’s gay scene with her girlfriend Viv. But when she’s confronted by one of her students in a lesbian bar, Jean is pushed to extreme lengths to save her job and her sanity.’
