So from a few people in the (seeming) know that I follow, this is apparently fucking spectacular. And it looks it, too. I love this cast.

Looks fantastic, as all A24 films tend to. Will this be the #OscarsSoWhite killer that The Birth Of A Nation was supposed to be (alongside Loving)?

I think it'll be Fences. It's based off of a Pulitzer winner, and it has Denzel and Viola. I do think Moonlight and Loving will get BP noms though.

This looks absolutely amazing.

 

I also like that whoever cut the trailer didn't just put a hip hop soundtrack over it because they thought it was a "black movie."

Like “Brokeback Mountain” a decade ago, “Moonlight” is a piece of art that will transform lives long after it leaves theaters. Those who will be changed by the picture may not see it on the big screen. They may even have to see it in secret. But when they do. Whey they watch Chiron

Spoiler

have that first kiss, when he can be himself for just an instance in a world that oppresses him?

It will be everything.

 this probably wont appeal to most black audiences. its very indie. and niche.

this was the first movie they actually financed themselves, everything up to now has been acquisitions. so they'll certainly want it to do well.

This looks really fucking good, but I'm betting the Oscars ignore it. Not that that matters lol.

I think it has a really good shot at the Oscars.
