In 1988, Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative government is about to pass the notorious Section 28, outlawing the “promotion of homosexuality” in schools. The atmosphere of oppression forces Jean, a PE teacher, to live a double life, struggling to reconcile her relationship and friendships in the gay community with the prejudice and ignorance of her family and colleagues. As pressure mounts from all sides, the arrival of a new girl at school catalyses a crisis that will challenge Jean to her core.

REVIEWS

“Considering the stranglehold transphobia has on British culture currently, BLUE JEAN feels all the more impactful as a cautionary tale of how this intolerance only breeds hatred and hurt.” Hannah Strong, Little White Lies
