Plot Summary
A boy grows up in a tough neighborhood while discovering that he is different from most of the people around him
This is a fascinating, slice-of-life, film that has moments of brilliance. It isn't a great movie, but it is a movie that you shouldn't miss if you are someone that goes to the theater at least once a week. If you are a casual movie-goer you will probably find this film to be somewhat slow and awkward.

Mahershala Ali's acting is award-worthy and Naomie Harris gives a performance that will break you into pieces. The trio of actors playing the lead character all do an amazing job. They may not be up for many awards, but their performances shouldn't be overlooked.

The story is highly emotional and powerful. Even during the times where the film feels like it bogs down there is still an underlying current of power that fills you up as you witness the unfolding tale.

This isn't an easy film to watch, nor is it one that will entertain you or make you feel good all over. However, if you are in the right mood for a powerful drama MOONLIGHT will give you all you want and more.
