Pariah

Pariah ★★★★

Pariah is quite the pleasant surprise. It's a drama about a lesbian teen Alike played wonderfully by Adepero Oduye an actress I wasn't previously familiar with. We see her struggles with her sexuality, and dealing with her parents. Her parents relationship is strained, her father is in denial about his daughters sexuality and her mother is both in denial and unaccepting. Adepero does such a fine job I really felt her struggle.

Pariah is very underseen and I can only hope more people will seek it out. We all can learn a lot from this character.
