Moonlight

Moonlight_(2016_film)Moonlight (2016) – 7/10

A coming of age movie in three acts.  Young Chiron growing up rough in Miami.  Drug addicted mother, unknown father.  Chiron and his peers sense there is something different about him.  Chiron seems confused, his peers angry.

Resourceful.  Chiron connects with a community willing to offer support to navigate his physical and emotional environment.  Patient and available.

Chiron is so reserved it’s frustrating.  It’s all internal, the struggle is palpable but untouchable.  We all witness Chiron’s journey and final redemption.

    It’s interesting that the community Chiron found, that accepted him, was fringe/bad/drug dealers. I wonder if Chiron ever felt fulfilled in life. In love.
