Moonlight

31 Jan

mv5bnzqxntiyodaxmv5bml5banbnxkftztgwnzqymda3ote-_v1_ux182_cr00182268_al_A timeless story of human self-discovery and connection, Moonlight chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami. (IMDb)

Oscar Nominations: Best Picture, Supporting Actor (Mahershala Ali), Supporting Actress (Naomie Harris), Cinematography, Directing (Barry Jenkins), Film Editing, Original Score, and Adapted Screenplay.

I’ve heard nothing but wonderful things about this movie, and thankfully, it definitely lived up to the hype. What was so beautiful about it was that it was so personal, so small in scope, yet you still felt a connection, a pull towards these people. Every single detail in this movie, every facial expression, every movement, was so precise and and specific, it just kept adding more and more to the story. The cinematography is beautiful, the acting is beautiful, I’m honestly still mulling this movie over in my mind. A slow burn at times, but still an enthralling one.

9/10
