It's Christmas Eve and Sin-Dee (newcomer Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) is back. Hearing that her pimp boyfriend (James Ransone, STARLET, Generation Kill) hasn't been faithful during the 28 days she was locked up, the sex worker and her best friend, Alexandra (newcomer Mya Taylor), go on a mission to get to the bottom of this rumor. Their odyssey leads them through various subcultures of Los Angeles.

According to IMDB cost for this was around 100,000.00 and return around 700,000.00. Apparently it is on the strength of this that Sean moved up to 'The Florida Project'. I don't see the budget for that one but Willem Dafoe probably means wider release. Perhaps it is unfair to say that these particular trannies have been allowed to portray themselves in a way that is comfortable for them. To me, neither the A or B plot here is convincing. I don't think it is time well spent if sparkly scenery, flashy clothing, and an upbeat sound track is the reward. One bit part player in the extras made the point that Baker has puke scenes in all his previous films as he has here. Haven't fact checked that. In thinking about this one, I recalled 'Even Dwarfs Started Small'. I don't say the film has no value. I take it on faith that it is a hard thing for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. Also, one cannot live by bread alone. It is good to be reminded of friendship. It looks like this particular way of living is entrenched.

At first I was mildly amused but then the movie just got worse as it went along.

Just another transgender garbage film. Lousy plot. Lousy acting.

Acting is terrific. Very funny look at not-so-easy lives. Friendship abides. Not a 5 star for me because it does drag a little over a tiny plot. Rodriguez and Taylor mostly overcome that with fantastic performances. Want to see them in more.

Terrific! Funny and very real, down to earth, gritty. If you have ever been to L.A., the humour & location will ring true for you. Also, if you like small underdog films, this is the movie to root for! Amazing!!! Best small pic of 2015!
