“What we're seeing here is the emergence of a promising writer-director, an actor and a cinematographer who are all exciting, and have cared to make a film that seeks helpful truths.”
Roger Ebert

"The finest coming-of-age movie I've seen in years." - Ella Taylor, National Public Radio

Teenage Alike lives in Brookyn's Fort Greene neighborhood with her parents and younger sister. A lesbian, Alike quietly embraces her identity and is looking for her first lover, but wonders how much she can truly confide in her family, especially with her parents' marriage already strained. When Alike's mother presses her to befriend a colleague's daughter, Alike feels she has met her perfect match.
