Excellent cinematography as well as performances.
A great character study film, one in which not many people will understand or want to understand. I hope that if you get to see this film, watch & go through with open mine and heart.
'Moonlight' is beautiful, poignant, heart wrenching, and surprisingly thought-provoking. Many of us can relate to at least one aspect of Chiron's story, and I think that's what makes him such a captivating case study. As brilliant as the writing is, words mean nothing without good actors - and my oh my does this movie have some good performances. Everybody is absolutely perfect in their roles, and Writer/Director Barry Jenkins' fascinating direction makes the events taking place even more enthralling. The film may run a little too long, and ever so slightly drag in certain places, but these are mere nitpicks. This is a movie that must be seen.
Moonlight was possibly the best movie I've ever seen.
The plot was fantastic and beautifully written by Tarell Alvin McCraney, in each chapter he takes us on Chiron's though life journey. This masterpiece was marvelous from the beginning to the end.
Even so, it's a movie you should see, even if (particularly if!) you think won't enjoy it.
