Three sentence movie reviews: Pariah

 In All (-ish), Three Sentence Movie Reviews

Thanks to the excellent Mudbound, I found Dee Rees and was able to see her first film, which is an excellent portrayal of a young woman’s coming of age; one complicated when she doesn’t fit in the boxes her parents have checked off for her.  Adepero Oduye is a controlled (and frustrated) Alike and Kim Wayans brings it as her trying-to-be-oblivious-while-also-controlling mother. This movie is a good reminder that even as our culture becomes increasingly queer positive, there are still a lot of harrowing individual journeys.

Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home

    I had not heard of this movie. Though I do know the work of Dee Rees (my fashion guys: T-Lo often cover her work). The post art is gorgeous.

      She did get a very good poster, which is surprising given the whole queer, female, Black woman thing.
