“It’s trashy, lurid, and hilariously profane – exploitation in the best, most cinematic sense – but without ever losing the thread of human ache that connects the handful of characters to each other.”~Wesley Morris, Grantland

Aroview: Energetic and frequently hilarious buddy comedy follows two transgender sex workers as they navigate the unforgiving streets of Los Angeles on Christmas Eve.

While its unscripted clamour and outspoken sexual neuroses sometimes feels (too) close to reality television, its loose threads satisfyingly cohere and it has the distinction of being a break-through feature film to be shot on an iPhone 6.
