2014 Turkish Film Festival: Somewhere in Between


A riveting lead performance anchors this poignant coming-of-age film about a young woman trying to move beyond the limitations of her mundane rural life. Zehra is employed at a 24-hour restaurant between Ankara and Istanbul where she works with Olgun, who is smitten with her and dreams of appearing on a television game show. Meanwhile, Zehra meets an older truck driver who seems to offer her an escape and some stability.

This fifth feature by one of Turkey's leading contemporary women directors is a sensitive depiction of the restlessness of youth, and was selected for prestigious international film festivals including Venice and New York.
