“If you keep up with the buzz humming off the festival circuit, then no doubt you’ve heard of Sean Baker’s Sundance hit Tangerine, which he shot using a handful of iPhone 5s (outfitted with anamorphic lens adapters). But please, make no mistake:Tangerine isn’t a movie about iPhones. It’s a movie about Alexandra (Mya Taylor) and Sin-Dee Rella (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez), two transgender sex workers in L.A. who briefly reconnect on Christmas Eve following Sin-Dee’s expired prison sentence, and then quickly separate as Sin-Dee goes on a tear through the city in search of the woman with whom her scummy boyfriend (James Ransone) is two-timing her.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
