Regent Street Cinema Presents: Tangerine
A working girl tears through Tinseltown on Christmas Eve searching for the pimp
Built in 1848, Regent Street Cinema was the first in the country to show moving pictures. With a recent renovation restoring it to its former grandeur, it has added an old school touch to the capital's movie scene, perfect for catching those classic flicks. This time, catch the film that got Sundance all stirred up: Tangerine. Shot entirely on an iPhone, it represents a major stride forward for trans people on film. With big style on a low budget, it follows a working girl making her way through Tinseltown on Christmas Eve, in search of the pimp that broke her heart. Funny, heart-wrenching and inventive, this is one of the most unique films to grace the screen in a long time. "This is sublime filmmaking, a textbook example of how indies can tell groundbreaking stories in a way that Hollywood simply can't match." – San Francisco Chronicle "The chemistry of the leads and their authentic, crackling dialogue make it a pleasure to tag along for the day." – Los Angeles Times Certificate 15. Runtime: 1 hour 28 minutes.
"A reinvigorating reminder of what indie filmmaking can – and should – do."
