  • 4 stars GREAT MOVIE
  • 5 stars Beautiful storyline...Beautiful cast...BEAUTIFUL!!!
  • Beautifully acted, written, filmed and directed. Definitely recommend!
  • 5 stars A beautiful masterpiece.
  • 5 stars Moonlight interweaves dialogue, silences, looks and gestures to reveal several experiences through characters. These characters nudge Little from Chiron to Black. The crucial philosophy in Moonlight is the caretaker, which is everyone's hand minus a fingertip--the gap that the protagonist must fill in to grow into himself. Once he listens to all of whom he is, Black becomes the dawn to that moonlight.
  • 5 stars I found this ,ovine to be emotionally draining due to the outstanding performances. It really hits home during the current political climate & opiate epidemic.
  • 1 stars Vey disappointing movie - very boring. I cannot understand all the 4 star ratings it gets
  • 1 stars I grew up in a very poor black neighborhood in the 80's and NOBODY dressed the way the characters did. The housing was not anything like portrayed here. The relationship between crack heads and the dope dealers was not real here either. I never remember anyone questioning a 6-8 year old about their sexuality either. The gay black men that I remember had very feminine and promiscuous. This movie is way off base upon reality and written by someone who did not have any idea as to what really happened. Some one is trying to soften the reality of growing up poor and the life of a junkie.
  • 4 stars 'Best movie of the year' hype is a bit of an overstatement. Solid character study. Nicely filmed. Well acted. Interesting mix of soundtrack.
  • 5 stars I have already seen this movie twice and am hoping to go see it a third and fourth time. It's an absolute knockout. When the movie ends, you'll wish there was at least another half hour. A very poignant and thought-provoking film experience. And what a cast and musical score ... MASTERPIECE!
