(R) USA – 1 hr 26 min  
2011 · d. Dee Rees
Starring Adepero Oduye, Kim Wayans, Aasha Davis, Pernell Walker

Brooklyn teen Alike (Adepero Oduye) is living a double life, quietly embracing her lesbian identity while hiding her sexuality from her family—until a budding bond with a church friend brings the situation to a head. This intimate debut from Dee Rees (Mudbound) is a modern coming-of-age classic.

Don’t forget to stick around after the movie for a talkback with Vincent Williams and Len Webb of The Micheaux Mission and Stephanye Watts of the Be Reel Black Cinema Club—and to vote on the next film in the series!

This program is presented with the generous support of the League of Historic American Theaters.
