In jeder Hinsicht ist Tangerine ein "Indie" Film. Es ist die Geschichte einer Transgender Prostituierten, die Weihnachten nach der Freundin ihres Zuhälters sucht. Tatsächlich wurde Tangerine mit einem iPhone gefilmt, was die Komödie nur umso liebeswerter macht. "Indie" von der Story als auch der Machart her!

Von ihrer besten Freundin erfährt sie, dass ihr Zuhälter sie während ihrer Haft betrog - und zwar mit einer Cisgender Geliebten. Dieses aufklärende Gespräch findet statt in einem Cafe, dauert einige Minuten und beweist, wieviel Humor die Schauspieler haben müssen - und wie gross die Kreativität der Macher Sean Baker und Chris Bergoch sein muss!

Tangerine (2015) R Transgender prostitute Sin-Dee (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) has just gotten out of prison. She is shocked to find out that her boyfriend and pimp, Chester (James Ransone), has left her for another woman. Sin-Dee is on a mission to find the cheating couple with the help of her best friend Alexandra (Mya Taylor). This is an interesting film shot entirely on iPhones but doesn’t look like it was. Mya Taylor’s performance as Alexandra, a woman who is trying to keep her best friend out of trouble, is the best thing about this film. Taylor gives her role a funny, sparkling turn, which makes her stand out from the rest of the cast. Shot of the streets of downtown L.A., the film, has a realistic feel to it and makes L.A., itself, one of the characters in the film. The film …
