leslie’s review published on Letterboxd:
i’m in tears right now. this is probably one of the best romantic films i’ve seen to date. this was honestly such a beautifully crafted emotional love story i’ve seen displayed on screen. this doesn’t surprise me coming from barry jenkins at all. tish and fonny’s love was inseparable and heavenly which made me want their true love as well.
i’m upset that this film was for the most part snubbed this award season, but it’s regina king that totally eyes for the win. she’s amazing. a true actress who displays real emotions and strong character.
i’m in complete awe right now.
also, diego luna appearing in this for 5 minutes or so was totally worth it.
