James Marsden is fineee😍😍
Beautifully crafted poetic film, another masterpiece by Barry Jenkins who effortlessly captures love, intimacy and hope. All the actors bring so much complexity to their characters. The long shots allow tension to be built and increase the intimate essences of the film.
The director creates an almost real aspect to this film through the use of little makeup and subtle direction which makes it feel more raw and emphasises the personal and heartbreak nature making the characters and relationship feel more real. I do like how this movie presents alcohol differently to most other teen movies, in other movies it is usually unoticed through the use of it in parties however in this film it is present during the most dramatic and tense scenes and it is impossible to not notice the heavy alcohol intake these teens both endure throughout the movie.
