''Pariah'' is a 2011 drama, written and directed by Dee Rees. It follows Alike (Adepero Oduye), a seventeen-year-old living in New York's Fort Greene neighborhood, as she struggles to establish a sexual identity. Alike ('Le' for short) is gay, but not as open about it as her best friend Laura (Pernell Walker). She especially avoids discussing it with her religious mother ([[InLivingColor Kim Wayans]]) and police officer father (Charles Parnell), although they have their suspicions.
