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.

It’s a remarkably accomplished picture on every level, not least the keenly felt and fiercely authentic performances.
