Moonlight

Moonlight ★★★★½

Moonlight is a must-see film for everyone, everywhere. It's compelling, yet heart-wrenching story of friendship and love that hooks you from the beginning and leaves you hanging on until the very end. With every stage of Chiron's life, I felt connected to him, feeling his pain along with his triumphs. With that being said, even though I knew that this movie had me captivated, at times, I found myself getting caught up in it's slow pace, eager to see what the next stage of Chiron's life would look like already. Even so, scenes such as Paula telling Little not to look at her had me right back in it. The contrast in that scene between the vivid pink colors reflected on Paula and the dull neutral background behind Little made me feel emotions that movies can seldomly achieve. This was the type of movie that I would rewatch from the beginning the second it ended and I will definitely be recommending it to people in the future.
