Remember the name Adepero Oduye. The luminous actress, along with adept writer/director Dee Rees, makes this new, coming-of-age drama exceptional. Oduye plays Alike, a young woman slowly coming out as a lesbian, with various members of her family and friends. We see Alike in her butch persona at a club, and then she transforms on the bus ride home into the dutiful, presumptively hetero daughter her parents assume her to be. Rees packs a lot into a simple narrative, and only rarely overpacks.
