Lingua Franca ★★★½

Soderbergh levels of herculean auteurist involvement from writer/director/producer(!)/editor(!!)/star(!!!) Isabel Sandoval. I do wish it pushed just a little past the lo-fi indie aesthetic, but the narrative itself is very affecting and distinctly lived-in and well-observed. I guess that's what happens when you let trans women and immigrants tell their own stories.
