Tribeca 2017: 14 Must-See Films From This Year’s Festival

“Saturday Church”

A gender-bending teen just beginning to explore his sexual identity finds community on the piers of New York’s West Village while dealing with a domineering and disapproving aunt back home. Add music to this timely New York coming-of-age story, and “Maggie’s Plan” producer Damon Cardasis’ directorial debut could not have found a more perfect home than Tribeca. With a breakout performance from Broadway actor Luka Kain as the nylon-stealing Ulysses, and strong supporting roles for deserving TV actresses Regina Taylor and Margot Bingham (“Boardwalk Empire”), if “Saturday Church” has even a little “Dancer in the Dark” with a pinch of “Hedwig” thrown in for good measure, it’s a sure crowdpleaser.
