About the Movie
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, STARLET, "Generation Kill") 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 rumor. 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Smart, antic comedy that's eager to offend.
Fresh: As one character observes in "Tangerine," Los Angeles is "a beautifully wrapped lie." Baker has created a fitting homage to artifice and the often tawdry, tender realities that lie beneath.
Fresh: [A] rollicking indie comedy.
Fresh: Baker gets great, sly, unforced performances from his two leads, but it's not all a rollicking good time: There are moments of quietude, inquietude, moments when a sense of wariness and loneliness settles over the women.
Great Film Shot on an iPhone 5s
I had a chance to see this at the Seattle International Film Festival. It was raw, gritty, brave and very naughty. I wish I had a dollar for every time they said the B word. There was a authenticity about the storytelling that was really refreshing. This is proof that you don’t need an expensive camera to make a good film. You need a good story. And this one delivers.
I Have Counted the Days
Since I first tangerine'd in the theater and dreamed of the day when I could watch it over and over and over. A tour de force
