Visual delight that adorns a plot with childish nuances for the universe that surrounds it. But that is destroyed with the bad musical selection.
As an action comedy is amazing.
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.
