'The Wild Pear Tree' Synopsis:

‘The Wild Pear Tree’ follows Sinan—an aspiring writer who returns home after college hoping to make enough money to publish his first novel. He wanders the town encountering old flames and obstinate gatekeepers, only to find his youthful ambition increasingly at odds with the deferred dreams of his gambling-addict father. As his own fantasies mingle with reality, Sinan grapples with the people and the place that have made him who he is. Unhurried, and magnificently acted, the film uses a young man's post-graduation experience to pose thoughtful, and engaging questions about life in contemporary Turkey.
