Tangerine is a American comedy-drama film directed by Sean Baker , and written by Baker and Chris Bergoch , starring Kitana Kiki Rodriguez , Mya Taylor , and James Ransone.
The story follows a transgender sex worker who discovers her boyfriend and pimp has been cheating on her. The film was shot with three iPhone 5S smartphones.
Tangerine premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on January 23, It had a limited release on July 10, , through Magnolia Pictures.
Transgender sex worker Sin-Dee Rella, who has just finished a day prison sentence, meets her friend Alexandra, another trans sex worker, at a donut shop in Hollywood on Christmas Eve.
Alexandra reveals that Sin-Dee's boyfriend and pimp Chester has been cheating on her with a cisgender woman.
Sin-Dee storms out to search the neighborhood for Chester and the woman. Alexandra hands out flyers for her musical performance that evening, and argues with a client who refuses to pay; their argument is broken up by the police.
Razmik, an Armenian cab driver, picks up a prostitute, but ejects her from his cab when he discovers she is not transgender.
He meets Alexandra and fellates her in a car wash, then goes home to eat Christmas dinner with his family. Alexandra goes to the bar for her performance, but no customers have arrived.
Sin-Dee finds the woman she is looking for, Dinah, at a brothel in a motel. She hauls her onto a bus to find Chester.
Dinah taunts her for believing she is Chester's only girlfriend. Sin-Dee realizes she is late for Alexandra's performance and drags Dinah there instead.
She reconciles with Dinah as they smoke crystal meth in the bar bathroom, and Sin-Dee applies Dinah's make-up. Alexandra performs to an otherwise mostly empty bar, where it's revealed she paid the bar owner to be allowed to perform.
Razmik leaves his family to attend Alexandra's performance, saying he has to work, but discovers he is too late and searches for Sin-Dee.
Suspicious, his mother-in-law, Ashken, hails another Armenian cab driver, Karo. The driver knows about Razmik's interests, and while initially hesitant, Karo agrees to help her track down Razmik.
Tangerine is near plotless, but still has a light driving narrative in the manner of a Richard Linklater film. She then sets out to extract revenge and answers.
Meanwhile her long-suffering friend has to prevent violence and kidnapping while trying to perform a show on Christmas Eve.
The film was shot entirely on a couple of iPhones with camera adapters on location in L. Our two protagonists Kitana Kiki Rodriguez and Mya Taylor are also played by actual transgender women, one of whom was a former sex worker.
Obviously, authenticity is a plus, but the manner in which Tangerine was filmed and released shows the endless possibilities of independent filmmaking.
There is a healthy dose of dark humor to be had, which helps a lot with some of the serious themes. These are sad, lonely, and doomed characters and many of the longer and more somber scenes convey the simple tragedy, while not becoming overbearing.
It was a neat, slice-of-life picture and it will stick in my mind for some time. Joshua S Super Reviewer. Mar 10, As such, it's often quite hilarious but never at the expense of the characters.
If Mya Taylor doesn't get consistent work after her performance here, then there is no justice in the world. Alec B Super Reviewer. Feb 22, A dramedy shot on iPhones smart phones augmented with equipment enhancing the filmmaking process but phones nonetheless , Tangerine tastes sweeter than a gimmick because the story smacks of a genuine experience.
Everything about this non-flavor-of-the-week brims with reality. Non-actors ratcheting up the drama. Drama wrenched from a simple electric premise.
A premise not many can relate to but driven by very sympathetic characters. Characters played by non-actors portraying real-as-hell drama that's captured on something that you most likely have in your pocket.
In this R-rated drama currently available on Netflix, a working girl Rodriguez tears through Tinseltown on Christmas Eve searching for the pimp who broke her heart.
The slim story of shadiness leaves for an economical narrative that puts character at the forefront. More sinners than saints themselves, Kitana Kiki Rodriguez and Mya Taylor nonetheless pull at our heartstrings because so little of the film and their performances prove seem put-on.
The situations and players come from an unsparingly honest place. What better way to document this experience than with guerilla technology that's at once recognizable and yet brilliantly improved upon?
Bells and whistles play a minor role, but the story elevates Tangerine from merely being a gimmick. His flick might be the highest profile example of Smart Phone cinema yet, but it's also damn good.
Bottom line: iMac Daddy. Jeff B Super Reviewer. Feb 07, This movie is hilarious for the most part, it's a dramedy about a transsexual prostitute tracking down her pimp boyfriend after getting out of jail.
