Pariah

Pariah ★★★★

i love how dee rees constructs these characters and relationships so that every person is wholly sympathetic, even as she makes clear who is morally in the wrong. she's more interested in depicting people each with their own personal hang-ups and personality flaws than depicting a conflict without nuance. i love the music so much, especially in that climatic moment when alike tears her bedroom apart.
