Movies are rarely made about people of color, and when they are they tend to features characters who are one-dimensional stereotypes, not fully fleshed-out individuals with both good and bad attributes. This film is a noteworthy exception. Adepero Oduye, an American actress of Nigerian descent, gives the breakthrough performance of the year as Alike (pronounced ah-LEE-kay), a young black lesbian coming to terms with her sexuality in a community and family rife with homophobia. It is a story very familiar to the film's writer/director Dee Rees, who wrote it while going through her own "coming-out process," jotting it down on napkins during lunch breaks on the set of her NYU film school mentor Spike Lee's 2006 film Inside Man, on which she served as an intern. She completed a 140-page script, but then needed to turn in a one-act senior thesis for NYU, so she took its first 30 pages and used it as the basis for a short, for which Oduye auditioned wearing her brother's clothes and blew Rees away. The short went to Sundance in 2006, where it was very well-received, and after which Rees and her partner/producer Nekisa Cooper resolved to turn Rees' script into a feature. For the next five years, they fought tirelessly to finance a film that would include the same principal cast (along with Kim Wayans, who people tend to associate with comedy, but who is fantastic in the very serious part of Alike's neglected and intolerant mother), going so far as to sell their home in order to finance an 18-day shoot. Their efforts were rewarded with an invitation to return to Sundance this past January, where the film played like gangbusters, was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize, and was picked up for distribution by Focus Features for an end-of-the-year release. For that we should all be grateful, as this is a film that will change outlooks and save lives.
