TWO BLUE STRIPES is a coming-of-age movie of young love and teen pregnancy.

This is a family drama with a big heart as first time director Ginatri S. Noer, who has had a productive career as a screenwriter, looks at teenage pregnancy with compassion and humanity. Set in the director’s native country of Indonesia, where the rate of pregnancies among minors continues to rise, we find Dara and Bima learning that they’re expecting. Initially setting out to address their circumstances when they graduate from high school, soon their parents get wind of the situation. There’s much to unpack here as there are mutual feelings among parents and children alike, including guilt and regret, stemming from the lack of sex education in the schools, not discussing the consequences of sex at home, and such realities as poverty, in the case of Bima and his family. While it’s easy to jump to conclusions and dismiss the young couple as irresponsible and reckless, they, along with their parents, demonstrate that they have a conscience as they work to be merciful and understanding in this tender coming-of-age story.
