The latest film I have seen ...

Having been awarded the wining Oscar for best picture Moonlight is not an easy film to watch namely because it takes the viewer through three different stages in the life of a young man with all his struggles to emotionally survive a series of hardship circumstances and find himself  (even sexually) but more so because the cinematographic approach is so intimate that it is hard not to strongly feel the silences, the doubts and the drama of the main character of the film as the whole story unfolds. 

The number of issues it touches makes it a rather profound film one ought to ponder on.



The performances by Alex Hibbert, Ashton Sanders and Trevante Rhodes who play the role of the young man throughout his child, adolescent and adulthood stages are second to none, being only equalled by the performance of Mahershala Ali, a drug dealer who plays a rather unique role in the life of the young man, which has led him to a winning prize as well, despite the fact that the performing level of every single character is noteworthy.
