Drunktown s finest trailer official
Three young Native Americans - an adopted Native girl, a young father-to-be, and a trans woman who dreams of being a model - strive to escape the hardships of life on an Indian reservation. Nizhoni seeks out her past, well after being adopted by a white Christian family, Felixia, a trans woman, pursues a spot in the "women of the tribe" calendar, and Sickboy is headed to basic training so he can take care of his soon-to-be-born child.

Drunktown's Finest received positive reviews from critics. Geoff Berkshire of Variety, said in his review that "Freeland takes her time bringing her characters together, allowing the audience an opportunity to marinate in the unique experiences of each individual first. The slow-burn approach is smartly executed, and the intersecting plotlines veer toward schematic only during Sick Boy and Felixia’s chance encounter at a grocery store, which leads to an eventful night out." John DeFore in his review for The Hollywood Reporter praised the film by saying that "Native American themes get a fresh look in three-handed drama." Gary Green of HeyUGuys gave the film three stars by saying that "Drunktown's Finest - A low-budget picture with bigger things on its mind."
