One of the surprise critical hits of last year was Sean Baker’s Tangerine. The drama-comedy hits DVD and Blu-ray on 28th March from Metrodome.
Baker also co-wrote the film with Chris Bergoch and stars Kitana Kiki Rodriguez, Mya Taylor, Karren Karagulian, Mickey O’Hagan and Sinister’s James Ransone.
It’s Christmas Eve in Tinseltown and Sin-Dee (newcomer Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) is back on the block. Upon hearing that her pimp boyfriend (James Ransone) hasn’t been faithful during the 28 days she was locked up, the working girl and her best friend, Alexandra (newcomer Mya Taylor), embark on a mission to get to the bottom of the scandalous rumour.
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’s prior films (Starlet, Prince of Broadway) brought rich texture and intimate detail to worlds seldom seen on film. Tangerine follows suit, bursting off the screen with energy and style. A decidedly modern Christmas tale told on the streets of L.A., Tangerine defies expectation at every turn.
