There’s a whole lot of buzz around this one. The characters are interesting, to be sure. And the way it was shot on iPhones is pretty cool, too. But I’m not going to go so far as to say it deserves Oscar consideration, as some have. The film is a day in the life of couple of BFFs who happen to be transgender prostitutes on the streets of Los Angeles. It’s Christmas eve and Sin-Dee (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) just got out of jail. Alexandra (Mya Taylor) is there for her, and she’s also trying to scare up an audience for her singing debut later in the evening. But when Sin-Dee mentions her boyfriend, Alexandra hints that he hasn’t exactly been faithful while she was away. And that kicks the film into gear as Sin-Dee goes on a rampage to find the “other woman” and show her who’s boss.
