Pariah (2011, director Dee Rees, 1 hour and 26 minutes, rated R)
A lesbian teenager in the Bronx juggles multiple identities to please friends and family, but pressure from home, school and within corrodes the line between her dual personas, with explosive consequences. The feature debut of writer/director Dee Rees, Pariah had its world premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Complement to Nina Chanel Abney: Royal Flush. Free!
