Turkish Film Festival
Sour Apples (Eksi elmalar)
Saturday, October 13, 2018:
Writer/director/star Yilmaz Erdoğan scores big with this boisterous epic spanning decades recounting the story of a small town mayor and his three beautiful daughters.
Aziz Özay (Erdoğan) protects his children’s virtue and his leadership of the town with the same fervour, but he cannot stop the girls from growing up—nor can he control the tide of history, which moves across Turkey in the form of political crisis. From grand mountain vistas to ribald humor, Sour Apples is a warm-hearted crowd pleaser.
