Blue Jean | Ratings & Reviews

"Ultimately, Blue Jean is a non-judgmental tale of self-acceptance, intergenerational solidarity and sapphic power."

Time OutTime Out

"It isn’t always subtle, but Blue Jean is a gorgeously presented, stirringly performed slice of British queer history..."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"An elegantly structured film composed of clever, delicate movements, every aspect of Georgia Oakley’s debut feature... is as restrained as Rosy McEwen’s excellent performance."

The Irish TimesThe Irish Times

"Jean is a complicated sort of hero, full of indecision and regret. It’s something bracingly captured by McEwen, who plays her as someone in a perpetual state of fight-or-flight."


"Novice director Georgia Oakley has coaxed a powerful, internalised performance from the equally untested McEwen."

The TimesThe Times

"Blue Jean is most remarkable when it simply observes Jean as she exists in her unmanageable world."

Slant MagazineSlant Magazine

"The script could have been a little bit more developed... but Blue Jean is certainly watchable and engaged with the issues."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"McEwan gives a spellbinding performance, conveying Jean’s flightiness and unease where the relatively sparse script leaves room for her."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

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

Screen DailyScreen Daily

"An incisive drama that grips like a thriller..."

The TelegraphThe Telegraph

"Oakley’s restrained yet powerfully poised film doesn’t shoot for fuzzy big-picture universality."
