Moonlight: The gay[ish] black panther

I call this film the gay black panther in that the cast was all African American and that there was a significant gay protagonist.

Movie rating: 9/10. What can I say? The movie was very emotionally touching; I lost count of the times I fought back tears at certain moments. As a coming-of-age film (like Boyhood) it succeeded in being relatable. I am not African American, but being gay and growing up, I do share that part of Chiron’s experience.
