When you want to change standards you make a movie like this. One that invites conversations about shushed realities and celebrates it too. You know, being gay and being black and being a man all in one can be a hard, hard existence. We aren't fair to them at times and we often forget them. #moonlight cast a very beautiful, very necessary light over them. What a dream. I watched it for the first time and it was so sobering that I just couldn't shake it in the first few hours after finishing it. I googled statistics and watched interviews on YouTube and read articles about gay men and the struggles in gay rights. It either mutes you or it moves you. Heart so broken by the teenage version of #chiron played by #ashtonsanders. There's a scene where he gets in a fight and you realize this is the point in his life that is the most confusing and most terrifying. Being a teenager is already so transforming but to also struggle with your sexuality, that nature of you, is formidable. In the movie poster teenage Chiron is the only one with bruises and cuts on his face and I think it's because it's the hardest point in his life. Ashton Sanders did absolutely breathtaking work along side his younger (#alexhibbert) and older (#trevanterhodes) self. The incomparable #BarryJenkins wrote and directed this beauty. The story is by #TarrellAlvinMcCraney and his collection of stories called #inmoonlightblackboyslookblue (bestnameever). It's important to also note that this film is the cheapest best picture ever made with a standing budget of $4 million and a gross of about $65 million. 2017 Academy Award's Best picture, Best Supporting Actor by the beautiful #mahershalaali and Best Adapted Screenplay. 🌕🌖🌗🌘🌑 Punch packed and thoughts provoked. Forever grateful for this absolute masterpiece. #longlivechiron#moonlight#film#movies#loveislove#inclusion#blackboys#miami#beautiful#storytelling#bestpicture#barryjenkins#passions#myfave#mademecry#acting#filmmaking#perfection#brilliance
@moonlightmov : a huge and great movie with an intense and infinity of emotional colors, a lots of angles approach, no clichés but wide minded and cleverly opened; silences, faces and words of great accuracy, a slow human trip in a life or three and more.
