This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
It was worth it, especially for seeing Michael Fassbender kissing Michael Fassbender
Moonlight goes beyond the pretension of being only a visual poem, it encompasses many concepts such as childhood, cruelty, sexualit and rejection (Never victimization as has been pointed out ) as few films dare.
It is not about the minorities or about being politically correct, the film is about the silent hell with which many human beings live throughout their lives.
Personally I consider that Moonlight is easily one of the most subtle and pure films I have seen in American cinema in resent years.
