Chronicles three stages in the life of Chiron, a young gay African American man. It explores the difficulties he faces with his own sexuality and identity, including the physical and emotional abuse he receives as a result of it.
Great performances from an ensemble cast. Naomie Harris is remarkable as Chiron’s drug addicted, emotionally abusive mother. Dynamite performance from Mahershala Ali.
Wonderfully directed by Barry Jenkins. A beautiful visually, well made and deep film.
Rating: 3.5/5 Stars
