This is a documentary. A native of Austria, Hedy Lamarr had a fledgling film career in Berlin before leaving with her mother for Hollywood on the eve of World War II. At the time many considered her the most glamorous actress in the world. The thing is, she had always been something of a mechanical whiz.

Movie: Pariah

Friday, February 28   Pariah*      2011 / 86 min. / R

This was African American screenwriter and director Dee Rees’s debut film. It depicts the coming out of Alike, a smart Brooklyn high school student whose family is not quite in the dark about her sexuality. It is felt but not acknowledged. It took Rees 5 years to raise enough to produce the film, acknowledged as semi-autobiographical, though Spike Lee mentored her. The film has received many, many awards and nominations. Rees later wrote and directed Mudbound and HBO’s Bessie.  Her star is rising.
