Bitch Radio: Pariah In Theaters Now!

The purple-tinged movie poster of Pariah, featuring Alike sitting in a bus seat looking at her reflection in the mirror. For this week's podcast, Kelsey, Jyoti, Ashley and I talk about the movie Pariah, the feature-length film by Dee Rees that's already garnered lots of critical praise. The movie follows Alike (pronounced Ah-lee-kay, and played by Adepero Oduye), a young black lesbian living in Brooklyn, who deals with the trappings that come with being a teenager: crushes, annoying parents, drama with friends, and trying to fit in. You can watch the official trailer here (which we excerpt in the podcast), and watch the interview with the director we mention here.

Make sure you support this movie on opening weekend! Check here to see if it's coming to a theater near you.

Worth the trip up North

I watched the movie last weekend and definitely recommend seeing it. It is a multi-faceted movie that touched upon many complex issues, in addition to highlighting the difficulties of coming out for a young black woman. I hope to see more work from this writer/director; these are the type of movies I'd like to see more of at my local theater: glad it was worth the trip up to San Francisco for the viewing.:--))
