In Tangerine, transgender sex worker Sin-Dee Rella returns from a 28-day stint in prison only to learn from her fellow trans sex worker Alexandra that her boyfriend and pimp Chester has been cheating on her. Executive produced by the Duplass Brothers, the film was shot on three iPhone 5s's on the streets of L.A. in 2013. Despite lacking prior acting experience, the film's stars Kitana Kiki Rodriguez (Sin-Dee) and Mya Taylor (Alexandra) carry the movie with aplomb, described in a review by Variety as "naturally compelling onscreen." Taylor, who you may recognize from her recent role in AMC's Dietland, landed multiple awards for her portrayal of Alexandra.
