Rated 95% on Rotten Tomatoes
 
Early nineties, in Tbilisi, the capital of the newly independent Georgia after the collapse of the Soviet Union.  The country is facing civil war and vigilante justice.  But for Eka and Natia, fourteen-year-old inseparable friends, life just unfolds: in the street, at school, with friends or elder sisters who are already dealing with men’s dominance, early marriage and disillusioned love.
 
The excellent new drama IN BLOOM, Georgia’s Oscar entry in the foreign-language category, has the heartbreak and hope of a country slipped inside a coming-of age-story of two 14-year-old girls.” – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
 
This adroit and understated coming-of-age film reminded me of the New Wave of Czech films in the 1960s, but with a distinctive poignancy that translates to wisdom. ” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
 
IN BLOOM has won prizes at festivals around the world, and the film was Georgia’s submission in the foreign language category at this year’s Academy Awards.   It didn’t make the final cut, but it was a worthy contender.” – Stephanie Merry, The Washington Post
 
As arthouse coming-of-age films go, this is brilliant — smart and sensitive with a screw-you feminist streak.” -Cath Clarke, Time Out
 
Language: Georgian (English subtitles)
