Dir Dee Rees
With Adepero Oduye, Kim Wayans
Rees’ powerful debut follows Alike, a promising Brooklyn teen with a flair for poetry, who quietly but firmly embraces her queer identity with the support of best friend Laura – an out lesbian – and the strained understanding of her family. With sumptuous visuals by cinematographer Bradford Young (Selma, Restless City), Pariah is a powerful and distinctive story about the journey for a rooted sense of self.
