Günes Sensoy, Ayberk Pekcan, Suzanne Marrot

Sweet, poetic Mustang has been called the Turkish Virgin Suicides, and there’s good reason. They’re both female-directed movies about exactly five sisters locked up by their oppressive guardians. In both stories, female sexual awakening is seen as evil.

However, foreign-language Mustang has some differences: a real sense of time and place and a level of compassion. Its Turkish setting – along with the sexual politic, the pro-feminist critique, and the subtle religious despotism – is both beguiling and infuriating. The sisters support each other, come to sexual fruition, and individually negotiate their confinement; they are the real draw here.

The Other Side of Life: Remarkable tidings

Recently, in a storied, New England Museum of Art, I stood in front of a painting of Christ on a cross. Beside me, a beautiful Reform Jewish family punctuated by twin girls, fought to gain control of voice volumes and squeaky, scampering feet. When at last, the first-grade bundles of energy were wrapped, I heard them cry out to their yarmelke-topped father: “Tell the story again.” I listened hopefully as they stood—innocent and excited—beside me, eyeing the same ab-perfected, long-haired, halo-sporting figure. I tried to not overhear. Of course, I listened with every bit of my heart.

After an elaborate dance—Na’ale Na’ale, or was it a cha-cha—around the subject, the uncomfortable father began his story, “So this baby was born in a barn,” only to be cut off by the boisterous inquisitors, “No, tell it like Mommy did.”

While more than 70 percent of U.S. states now allow same-sex marriage, the waves of change have yet to reach America’s far-flung and socially conservative territories in the Caribbean and Pacific.

Of the five territories, only Puerto Rico has faced a lawsuit seeking the right for gay and lesbian couples to wed, and a federal judge there rejected the suit. That case is under appeal before the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston.

Screened Out – Fifty Shades of Grey

Do you know what’s shocking about Fifty Shades of Grey? It’s dull. This film about a virgin who dips her pinky toe into a BDSM relationship is about as titillating as buying cat litter. There’s hardly enough plot to call this a story.

Not that the source material promised much. I barely got through the bad grammar and simple sentences of the first book, which started as pornographic fan fiction for the Twilight books. According to snarky legend, enough bored housewives loved it that E.L. James removed the copyrighted stuff and made it a bodice ripper replete with semi-kinky sex and glamorous living. Not being one for understatement, James gave her characters the grandiloquent names Anastasia Steel and Christian Grey.
