Coming Soon

It's Christmas Eve in Tinseltown and working girl Sin-Dee (the incandescent Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) is back on the block. Upon hearing that her pimp boyfriend (James Ransone, Starlet, “Generation Kill”) hasn't been faithful during the 28 days she was locked up, Sin-Dee goes on a mission to track him down and set him straight, with her best friend Alexandra (Mya Taylor) tagging along hoping to cool her down. Their rip-roaring odyssey leads them through various subcultures of Los Angeles, including an Armenian family dealing with their own repercussions of infidelity. Director Sean Baker (Starlet, Prince of Broadway) brings rich texture and intimate detail to worlds seldom seen on film. For Tangerine he opted to shoot on an iPhone with wide-screen adapter, and the results are spectacular: fluid and intimate, the film bursts off the screen with energy and style. A decidedly modern Christmas tale told on the streets of L.A., this acclaimed dramatic comedy defies expectation at every turn.
