Moonlight ★★★★★

Usually when I watch a movie I write down all my notes in my mini book but the page today is pretty blank. Because I'm honestly speechless.

'Moonlight' chronicles the life of Chiron Harris navigating through life, facing the various adversities many of us do when trying to find ourselves. He's small and reserved making him a prime candidate for playground bullies & to top it all of he's trying to come to terms with his own sexuality. Now I am not a boy, I'm not American and I really don't share many similarities life wise to the scenes depicted on screen but 'Moonlight' made for one of the most poignant watches of my entire life.

I felt as though my heart was ripped from my chest, thrown to the floor & squished by a chunky pair of DMs. So many minutes watched were plagued by feelings of intense sadness & trepidation, I just wanted to reach through the screen and give little Chiron a hug. The casting is PHENOMENAL, the story is real & the entire thing is just a masterpiece. No more words x the end x
