Moonlight – A Quick Capsule Review

Moonlight – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Moonlight is an interesting failure. Actually failure is a bit harsh. The film doesn’t fail – the direction is great and the central performances are top draw but overall it feels a little TV movie of the week.  Be it the bullying (which feels like Home & Away at times) or the boys self discovery, there’s nothing here that feels groundbreaking or fresh. That said the performances alone make this worth watching and whilst it falls short of the critical praise heaped on it, it’s worthy enough to spend a couple of hours film
