Moonlight 

Coming of Age films that can transcend generations or change the perception of how our generation can be perceived are hard to come by. Moonlight manages to give the world a fresh point of view of those who are struggling internally or physically attempting to change their way of life. This film is beautiful in its execution, it was very soft and innocent but impactful. It allowed the innocence of a child to speak volumes towards important social issues that this generation is plagued by. There was such purity within the dialogue and the frames that were captured. There was a tenderness that played within the frame for Chiron, the essence that was radiating from him was his innocence and it made audiences feel for him from the beginning of this film. The three part narrative structure went together seamlessly, the three key parts to the masculine path to adulthood was beautifully captured.
