Moonlight is filled with breathtaking performances, a beautiful score, an engrossing powerful story, stellar visuals, and its directed to perfection. I was just blown away while watching the film and I was in awe afterwards. I highly recommend you watch the film and just sit back and relax and enjoy the story of Chiron. I have seen the film twice now and it gets even better on a second viewing. Each shot conveyed so much emotion. It’s just so brilliant in every way. The performances really blew me away too.
All the three actors who played Chiron, Naomie Harris as Chiron’s mom, and Mahershala Ali deserve a ton of awards and the film itself deserves all the praise its been getting. In conclusion, its one of the best films of the year and I highly recommend you to check it out. Once you watch the film, you’ll realize why everyone’s been raving about it. It’s directed to the crisp by Barry Jenkins, gorgeously shot, very well written, and filled with incredible performances. The film will 100% be a contender for this years Academy Awards and it should get nominated for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor for Mahershala Ali, and Best Supporting Actress for Naomie Harris and win a few.
