Sean Baker's Tangerine has been described as a 'Hymn to the spirit of the streets' (Empire) and now the acclaimed, multi-award-winning feature is set for the Limited Edition Blu-ray treatment courtesy of Second Sight Films on 19th December 2022.
Shot on an iPhone and starring outstanding performances from its previously unknown lead stars, Kitana Kiki Rodriguez and Mya Taylor, this is a hugely entertaining, beautifully shot, funny and original piece of filmmaking that makes for a slick, attention-grabbing alternative Christmas watch.
It's Christmas Eve on the streets of LA. We meet Sin-Dee Rella (Rodriguez) a transgender sex worker who - fresh from a short stint in prison - finds out from her best friend Alexandra (Taylor) that the pimp she's in love with has cheated on her while she was away. The wronged Sin-Dee Rella declares war and sets off on one hell of a mission with Alexandra in tow, with only one thing on their mind, to find the cheat and teach him and his new lover the lesson of a lifetime, on a chaotic not so festive night.
The Tangerine Limited Edition Blu-ray Box set is presented in a rigid slipcase with brand new artwork by Caelin White at FEM-Design, complete with a 60-page book with new essays and comes squeezed full of fascinating and entertaining special features, including a making of, director, writer and actor interviews, audio commentaries and much more, please see full list below.
