    @benjaminbode She lives in Fort Greene, so I think you meant the Afro-Chic butch lesbian poet demographic.

    @omgwtfwthlol Sure I know this, I was however anxious to see it. Would have supported it if it was available in my city thanks for your response

    @TheBiancalov How about supporting the film makers and watch it on Netflix, but of course it'll be on there or on amazon or on itunes. Just be patient.

    Just saw it in San Francisco. Positively beautiful. Never too treacly or cliché. Sadly, no Oscars for this one because the Academy is run by headless chicken.

    Pariah was so AWESOME!!!! A well told and filmed story with powerful actresses and actors. It's not preachy or over glamorized or any of those things that MOST LGBTQA films tend to do. It was in fact a perfect snapshot in a girl's coming of age, becoming one with self and self-acceptance when surrounding by so many faux examples of how she thought she "should" be. Excellent movie to just purchase when it comes out on DVD too. It's playing in downtown Chicago and Evanston, IL at AMC theatres.
