Celebrating the empowerment of women in the film industry. Read more >
This film was last shown on 8 October 2017
A rare opportunity to see this delightfully warm and honest
film, which despite wow-ing audiences at Sundance 2011, never received UK
17 year-old Alike quietly but surely embraces her identity
as a lesbian. Growing up in Brooklyn, as a straight-A student and talented
poet, she is comfortable with who she is, but faces the difficulty of encouraging
her family’s acceptance. At home, her sexuality is an unspoken truth hoped to
be a phase. Her parents’ relationship is tense, Alike has cultivated two
distinct appearances: her streetwise, androgynous self and the effeminate young
girl that puts her parents at ease, but as she navigates young adulthood and
begins to explore her sexuality, it becomes difficult to maintain the illusion.
A heartfelt tale with coming of age themes that will
resonate universally, but strike a chord for people of colour and those with experiences
of being LGBTQ+.
