Moonlight

Remember Richard Linklater’s Boyhood? If Linklater’s movie was about the tough situations faced by a boy from childhood to teenage, Moonlight from director Barry Jenkins explores a bit wider in terms of emotional ground and self realization. The disturbing feel this movie manages to create through its semi poetic and largely realistic visualization is so …
