Holding the most buzz from the Sundance Film Festival this year, is the feature-length directorial debut of Dee Rees for a revolutionary film named “Pariah.

Set in Brooklyn, New York, this drama dives into the life of a 17-year-old African American lesbian, Alike. Not sure where to set her place in the world, Alike is trying to live her life without having to hide what she truly is: a homosexual woman.

At an age where establishing one’s identity is crucial, Alike finds herself in a bind to pursue a relationship with a girl companion, while at the same time, trying to hide her sexuality from her mother, played by Kim Wayans.

This film is an eye opener and has received great reviews from Rolling Stone, The New York Times and more. GlobalGrind also agrees that this film is revolutionary and a step in the right direction for a better, more accepting society.

Check out the trailer and pictures from the upcoming movie, Pariah” on the next few pages.
