Cannes 2015: 'Mustang' Review

Mustang is a Turkish film about five sisters who live under the thumb of their conservative uncle. Deciding that they need to be supervised more closely now that they're into puberty, the uncle essentially locks them up in the house over the summer, hoping that will keep them away from boys. But the sisters may have something to say about that. I reviewed the comedy-drama, which will be opening in the U.S. early next year, for Screen International.
