Passing Strange (2017)
Ellen Klages
"With Passing Strange, Ellen Klages has spun a marvelously gritty tale of the bad old days, deftly weaving a tapestry from bittersweet nostalgia, magic, weirdness, romance, and the ugly truth of being queer in San Francisco at the dawn of WWII. It earns my highest compliment: I wanted more."
