With this one, you'll have to be patient. Barry Jenkins as a director is indeed not brutal nor harsh - rather strangely sweet and vague when describing his characters' human trajectory in Moonlight. Both in a singular way - a young homosexual lives in the hell of the black ghetto of Miami, and universally - the search for oneself that we all know about. If you let yourself get carried away by this piece, you'll get a flow of images sometimes dreamy, sometimes incredibly physical. And a lot of emotion and empathy. Unexpectedly intelligent, it's also when questioning racial and sexual identity a film that proves to be infinitely necessary and brilliantly political. In other words, perfect for celebrating love and acceptance.
