1. FILM: Gun Hill Road
In writer-director Rashaad Ernesto Green’s terrifically tense and touching feature debut, which opens August 5 in limited release, stunning trans actress Harmony Santana stars as Michael, a shy Bronx teen just beginning to live as Vanessa — something that confuses, angers, and disgusts her papi, a macho ex-con played by Esai Morales. Also look for out Camp star Robin de Jesús as her sassy gay sidekick. For more info visit GunHillRoad.com.
