Hi, I'm Piya, long-time li.st lurker, first time li.ster. Here are my five favorite indie movies this year, in no particular order. Go see them all!
  1. Hunt for the Wilderpeople
    Only the brilliance of Taika Waititi can fuse together sharp humor, stunning performances and heart wrenching moments in this gorgeous movie.
  2. Blue Jay
    High school love is the best love ❤️
  3. Moonlight
    Breathtaking performances in this beautifully subtle dissection of the life of a young black gay man.
  4. The Lobster
    A terrifying yet very appropriate lens into the path that our current dating culture is taking us on. Colin Farrell is 👌🏽
  5. Southside With You
    Trust the Obamas to have the absolutely perfect first date 😭❤️
