  • 1 stars Because there are so many garbage movies currently playing I took a chance on this one. Hey, it won Best Picture. It has to be good, right? Wrong. Slow, boring, gratuitously far fetched (come on, who questions a 6 yr old on his sexuality? No one!) bad acting - this turkey has it all. REALLY BAD. The Academy gave this Best Picture if only because they felt they had no choice but to pick a movie, any movie. Mission accomplished. Unless you are hopelessly sympathetic to all things gay (I am not; I could care less) AVOID AT ALL COST! For those who gave this dog 5 stars ( or more than 1) - grow up. Its no one's fault you were born confused. But misrepresenting this as 5 star is wrong on so many levels. Shame on you.
  • WOW. ...a powerful movie,great acting...absorbing. ...
  • 5 stars Coming of age is even harder when you are gay, black and your mom is a crack addict, but Chiron finds unlikely help in Liberty City i the 90's, Miami's toughest section. Wonderful acting and sensitive in its look at homosexuality where it is least tolerated.
  • 5 stars I liked the brilliance of the director's creation of intimacy. I loved the characters. I loved the casting and acting. The only thing I had trouble with was believing that the last actor in the grown-up phase of the protagonist's life was the same physical person as the younger actors in the boy's earlier life. You just have to forget the physical differences. I think one of the greatest scenes was the young man and his mother,her honesty in acknowledging her neglect of him. this was a compassionate and intimate movie with great character portrayals and emotional depth..
  • 1 stars Terrible movie! Do not waste your time or money. Cannot believe it won best picture!
  • 5 stars The kind of movie that opens your eyes. Amazing cast. Music that reflects the atmosphere beautifully. Stunning to watch this one particular child grow up. I was thrilled it was recognized at the Oscars.
  • 1 stars I didn't like this movie at all it really confused me. I wouldn't see this movie any more I didn't think it was good at all.
  • 3 stars A good movie but it doesn't deserve to be the golden globe winner for best picture
  • 5 stars This is what film and characterization should aspire to be. Making ones way towards self realization under very difficult circumstances. And a really great score.
