From Gay Essential
This television drama film was directed by Cheryl Dunye and tackles the topic of incarceration and jail conditions in the United States. Starring Yolonda Ross and Davenia McFadden, Stranger Inside premiered in 2001 and centres on a daughter’s love for her mother, as well as lesbian relationships within adult prisons.
“Inspired by four years of research into the lives of female prisoners and featuring real inmates as part of the cast, out director and screenwriter Cheryl Dunye’s Stranger Inside is a realistic and compelling film about women behind bars.”
“It’s more than a story about women facing the harsh realities of life behind prison bars. It’s more about surviving on the outside when your mind is already on lockdown.”
“Filmmaker Cheryl Dunye makes a smooth, self-assured transition from frisky, free-form “The Watermelon Woman” to more conventional storytelling in the brutal, gritty drama Stranger Inside.”
