Directed by Yılmaz Erdoğan (2016, 114 min.). Digital. In Turkish with English subtitles.

Sour Apples spans decades as it recounts the story of Aziz Özay and his three beautiful daughters. Aziz is the mayor of a small Turkish town, and he lords it over its citizens with a vanity that barely conceals his insecurity. Safiye, Muazzez, and Türkan are his daughters, all reaching adulthood and looking for love, and they’re quite a handful for the proud patriarch. He protects his children’s virtue and his leadership of the town with the same fervor, but he can’t stop the kids from growing up—nor can he control the tide of history.
