The 20 little-known movies you might have missed in 2015

1. Tangerine

The story: Having just been released from prison, transgender hooker Sin-Dee (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) learns her pimp boyfriend (James Ransone) hasn't been faithful and sets off across Los Angeles with her best friend Alexandra (Mya Taylor) to find out why.

Why you should watch it: So much more than its central gimmick of being the first film shot on the iPhone 5s (though you wouldn't know it from the stunning cinematography), Tangerine is a filthily funny and vibrant force of nature that deserves every award coming to it. It's anchored by two tremendous performances from Kiki Rodriguez and Taylor, all the more remarkable given they are both making their screen debut.
