It’s Christmas Eve in Tinseltown and Sin-Dee (newcomer Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) is back on the block. Upon hearing that her pimp boyfriend (James Ransone, STARLET, “Generation Kill”) hasn’t been faithful during the 28 days she was locked up, the working girl and her best friend, Alexandra (newcomer Mya Taylor), embark on a mission to get to the bottom of the scandalous rumor. Their rip-roaring odyssey leads them through various subcultures of Los Angeles, including an Armenian family dealing with their own repercussions of infidelity. [Magnolia Pictures]

"This is a gorgeous, timely and possibly profound human comedy, and if there’s no disentangling the medium from the message that’s because both are powerful and ambiguous."
- Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
"This is sublime filmmaking, a textbook example of how indies can tell groundbreaking stories in a way that Hollywood simply can’t match."
- David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle
"Baker once again manages to match underrepresented faces in American cinema with material that lets their personalities shine."
- Eric Kohn, indieWIRE
"Rodriguez and Taylor are terrific. Their confidence is infectious, yet they never let us forget the challenges their lives offer."
- Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"Tangerine is the wildest screwball transgender comedy since Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon donned lipstick, mascara and full-tilt female get-ups in "Some Like It Hot.""
- Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"A necessary portrait of a multiracial L.A. as a concrete-surfaced hard-knocks-a-thon... as well as a hilarious and high-spirited comedy with a dramatic, third-act curve ball that reminds us that there are aching hearts under the quips and weaves."
- Inkoo Kang, TheWrap
"Shot on an iPhone 5 for practically no money, Tangerine jumps off the screen and wows you like nobody's business."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
