Casting "Lacquerista," a violent and stylish thriller. Synopsis: The final senior thesis film written and directed by Taylor Stuckey before graduating at Towson University, and going on to start her Master of Fine Arts program at the amazing University of South California - School of Cinematic Arts. Taylor is a black trans woman that wanted to create a film that subtly spoke to that identity, and the identities of so many women struggling to find their identity in the face of society's oppressive standards. This is the story of two women, a small, intimate thriller. Mercedes, a young nurse who stays sane by obsessing over beauty and fashion, and her huge nail polish collection, agrees to take care of another young black woman, Jemila, who has been left temporarily paralyzed in a wheelchair due to an accident. Mercedes begins to subtly influence Jemila to be more like her, obsessing over her appearance and make-up, but she begins to fear Jemila's intentions, as strange things begin to happen around the house, and Jemila's obsessiveness over the beauty norms placed before her grows to a dangerous, near-psychotic degree. And while Mercedes may be developing very real feelings for Jemila and their relationship, that begins to fulfill her more than any other superficial distraction, Jemila's obsession threatens to turn violent, as she wishes for nothing more than to steal Mercedes beauty from her - right off her body...One location, two actresses of color, with a very unique visual style of everything being in black and white, except for lipstick and nail polish.
