Good movie, but really sad. A story about a kid named Chirone and his life, in three phases.

Well. That was sad.

Without question one of the best movies I've ever seen - quietly moving and beautifully acted, this one will stick with you long after you've finished watching.

Depressing but wonderful movie. The real settings really help make the movie. Great job by director.

A coming-of-age movie in a time when coming of age takes longer because of the difficulty and pain. Also, “art house” meets the hood. A much welcome and needed film - not to be missed.

A heartbreaking and touching movie about a young black man growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami. Great acting for all participating cast. The film had won the Academy Award for Best Movie 2017.

This is a very touching and beautifully shot film about one boy/man's deep pain and isolation. A creative, powerful film!

Long, pointless, and tedious film that's mediocre at it's best.
I know that I'm supposed to be enthralled by the edginess of a gay Black man in urban Miami, But, none of this is even remotely "edgy" or unfamiliar.
Why I'm supposed to care about any aspect of his excruciatingly boring life is beyond me.

This Oscar winning movie, Moonlight is 100% deserving of its high status in the film world. This movie tells a beautiful, poignant story of drugs, life in the ghetto, queer identity, young love, and family. The movie follows the life of Chiron, from a young boy to a teenager to an adult, and the life he makes for himself. The focus on key events in Chiron’s life is especially effective in creating a focal point around the main themes of the story. This movie managed to touch on so many important issues in such a personal and nuanced way, a shocking feat. I would hope most people have already watched Moonlight but I would recommend it to anyone who has denied themselves the absolute pleasure of watching this movie. Overall, I love this movie and I cannot say enough good things about it. 5/5

This movie follows important milestones and defining moments in the life of Chiron - a young black man growing up in Miami. The quote “it takes a village to raise a child” rings true in this story as the community as a whole plays a major role in his upbringing. He must tackle issues with his own identity as well as the behaviour and actions of his mother and the people around him. He must also learn how to handle being a minority male who also happens to be gay. This movie is something that has never been seen before and deeply explores what it means to be a human. I would rate this film 4.5/5 stars.

Well made film. Part 1 was a bit slow as the main character didn’t speak much at all.

Juan: I saw your mama last night.

Little: I hate her.

Juan: I bet you do.

[pause]

Juan: Hated mine too.

[pause]

Juan: Miss her like hell now. All I'm gonna say about that.

Tons of quotes in IMDb already but this one was unexpected and shocking:

You the only man that's ever touched me. You're the only one. I haven't really touched anyone since.

“I was a wild little shortie, man. Just like you. Running around with no shoes on, the moon was out. This one time, I run by this old lady. I was running, howling. Kinda a fool, boy. This old lady, she stopped me. She said, “Running around, catching a lot of light. In moonlight, black boys look blue. You're blue. That's what I’m gonna call you: ‘Blue’.”
“Is your name 'Blue’?”
“Nah. At some point, you gotta decide for yourself who you’re going to be. Can’t let nobody make that decision for you.”
