Kim Wayans, Adepero Oduye, Aasha Davis and Charles Parnell star in Dee Rees’s inspiring film that critics hail is “Vibrantly alive! Potently moving and heartfelt!” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone). Seventeen-year-old Alike (pronounced ah-lee-kay) lives with her parents and younger sister in Brooklyn's Fort Greene neighborhood. She has a flair for poetry, and is quietly embracing her identity as a lesbian.

Wondering how much she can confide in her family, Alike strives to get through adolescence with grace, humor, and tenacity – sometimes succeeding, sometimes not, but always moving forward.
