    This is a good film. No it isn't Lord of the Rings or a blockbuster. But it is an important film moment for the black LGBT community. I liked it and will recommend it.

    This film revisits well worn stereotypes from the days when all black people were either drug takers or drug pushers in the media. In spite of a good cast, this film demonstrates that all the important efforts made by the black community to reject this wholly negative view of black identity, seem to have fallen on deaf ears.

    I loved this movie. It's deep and intense, and covers real emotions and experiences without succuming to the usual overbaked approach that so often comes out of Hollywood. It is beautifully put together, with every element complementing each other perfectly.

    Not what I expected, boring and slow yawn. How did this win anything.

    A milestone in the history of arthouse film, this picture and its unexpected but well-deserved success is exuberant with the message that small moments can change lives: if you allow it to, Moonlight could well change yours.

    Very simple film that tells a tough, moving story that keeps you hypnotised to the screen for the duration. Acting and score are brilliant. Given the very specifics of the films story, you'll find yourself relating to the story within your own story. As the director put it, its a film about connection and identity at its core. What could be more relevant than that! A must watch.
