    Beasts of No Nation

    ★★★★½

    You know what, it's late enough at night and I'm tired enough that I wouldn't be surprised if I just didn't fully appreciate Beasts of No Nation as I should have.

It's an intriguing study of class that somehow seamlessly switches tones about halfway through the movie but that is engaging all the way through. I can't necessarily speak as to how well the nuances of the written dialogue and line deliveries were executed since…
