Moonlight Sonata

February 5, 2017

Shimmering shards of moonlight expose young Chiron in boyhood, adolescence, and in manhood.

Pieces of a puzzle writ in poetic beats. Such things that we are made of. Shards of light that films are made of.

Barry Jenkins Moonlight starts with a swirling camera. Looking. Probing. Figuring where to rest its gaze?

In short order, Jenkins reins in his swirling camera, knows he needs to tell Chiron’s story more quietly; just watch; record Chiron’s fragile life revealed as it unfolds.

A life in search of love.
