Capital Celluloid 2023 — Day 357: Sun Dec 24

Tangerine (Baker, 2015): Curzon Bloomsbury, 2pm

Chicago Reader review:
This rollicking indie comedy takes place among the hookers of West Hollywood on Christmas Eve, a time for peace on earth and good will toward—bitch, I will fucking kill you! Back on the street after 28 days in jail, working girl Sin-Dee (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) learns that her pimp/boyfriend has been cheating on her and, dragging along her best pal (Mya Taylor), sets out to collar the woman in question. Writer-director Sean Baker (Starlet, Prince of Broadway) locates the viewer so squarely inside the characters' sad, constricted world that when Sin-Dee and her nemesis overlook their differences long enough to share a crack pipe in the ladies' room, they might as well be drinking egg nog at a holiday party. With Baker regulars Karren Karagulian, Mickey O'Hagan, and James Ransone.
