Moonlight ★★★★½

i'd kept hearing that this was a devastating movie and thought going in that it would be heavier and would end more sadly than it did. don't get me wrong; the subject matter explored is very personal and heavy, but that by no means makes this a movie that is excessively difficult to watch. it is compelling and tender and keeps you engaged and invested the whole way through. the ending to me feels soft, optimistic, romantic. i'll leave it at that, as there's little i can say about this movie that hasn't already been said. watch it!
