One of the most relevant movies to come out in the past years, Moonlight is a celebration of onscreen aesthetics and delicate screenwriting, acting and directing. In the poorer area of Miami, snippets of the life of a gay African-American man are shown in three different ages, states, and attitudes. Throughout the movie, and as you witness him progress and regress, you become almost enchanted by what is happening in front of you. You find yourself in a state of understanding and not understanding, of thinking you know what’s going to happen in the next scene, but also of having no idea of what is to follow. Winner of the Best Picture Oscar, Best Supporting Actor (for Mahershala Ali who plays one of the main charachter’s early role models), and Best Adapted Screenplay.

This is one of the most interesting movies to come out in a long time. Not only is it aesthetically beautiful, the acting is perfect and the narrative captivating and thought provoking. Everyone needs to see this movie.

One of the best movies I’ve watched in years.
The way Barry Jenkins deliver the struggles of the protagonist is just impressive.
Janelle Monae and Mahershala Ali perfomances are terrific.
