This monthâ€™s selection is BLUSH, a Film Club premiere that Variety called â€śa fresh, frank look at coming out and coming of ageâ€ť and AfterEllen saidÂ â€śbleeds cool in a way a lot of American indies only wish they could.â€ť
Michal Vinikâ€™s debut feature, Blush, revels in the conventions of coming-of-age dramas. It finds joy in the classic transgressions of teenage rebellion while reimagining the cinematic tropes of the genre. Still, Blush reaches beyond the short-term aspirations of its fierce protagonists. Its subtle yet deliberate screenplay paints an intimate portrait of contemporary Israel and fearlessly engages the politics of a divided state as they manifest in familial gestures and color expressions of love. The filmâ€™s ultimate rejection of the escapist and hedonistic impulses of youth makes it an enduring tale sure to carve its distinct place in the heart of audiences young and old.
