Pariah | Bina’s Kiss Catches Alike Off Guard

Share now:

As tension rises between Alike (Adepero Oduye) and her family, she and Bina (Aasha Davis) grow closer. But are the two teenagers on the same page when it comes to their relationship? 

Film Synopsis:
Kim Wayans, Adepero Oduye, Aasha Davis and Charles Parnell star in Dee Rees’s inspiring film that critics hail is “Vibrantly alive! Potently moving and heartfelt!” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone). Seventeen-year-old Alike (pronounced ah-lee-kay) lives with her parents and younger sister in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene neighborhood. She has a flair for poetry, and is quietly embracing her identity as a lesbian. But whenever Alike’s development becomes a topic of discussion at home, her parents’ already strained marriage is pushed to the breaking point. Wondering how much she can confide in her family, Alike strives to get through adolescence with grace, humor, and tenacity – sometimes succeeding, sometimes not, but always moving forward.
