Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

The path to living as one’s authentic self is paved with trials and tribulations in this revelatory, assured feature debut by DEE REES (Mudbound)—the all too rare coming-of-age tale to honestly represent the experiences of queer Black women.

Grounded in the fine-grained specificity and deft characterizations of Rees’s script and built around a beautifully layered performance from ADEPERO ODUYE (12 Years a Slave), Pariah follows Brooklyn teenager Alike, who is dealing with the emotional minefields of both first love and heartache and the disapproval of her family as she navigates the expression of her gender and sexual identities within a system that does not make space for them.

Achieving an aching intimacy with its subject through the expressive cinematography of BRADFORD YOUNG (Arrival),  his deeply felt portrait finds strength in vulnerability and liberation in letting go.

Special Features:

  • 2K digital transfer, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • New conversation between director Dee Rees and filmmaker and professor Michelle Parkerson
  • New cast reunion featuring Rees, Adepero Oduye, Pernell Walker, Kim Wayans, Charles Parnell, and Aasha Davis, moderated by scholar Jacqueline Stewart
