Moonlight film raises eyebrows but fails to live to expectations!

For instance Moonlight film has been nominated eight times alongside Arrival.

As part of #OscarBuzz at the premiere recently, Moonlight that is now in the market depicts masculinity, intimacy and identity crises in three chapters.

Played by Alex Hibbert who plays child Chiron also known as ‘Little’ it explores the coming of age story of a gay black man living in a black neighbourhood. That’s until he’s an adult. This is confusing Barry Jenkins, film director.

Childhood, adolescent and adulthood, made a sterner sense but the actual acting means you have to concentrate to understand the influence that led to above mentioned stages. Confusing…

The only one thing I could associate with was the drug issue, because Chiron had to be raised by an upcoming drug lord-having being abused by his mother played by Naomie Harris, the Oscar nominee who is popular for her role in as Winnie Madikizela-Mandela in the 2013 biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

A cultural phenomenon and cinematic masterpiece, disagree.

But be my guest and see the film and apply your mind.

On a sober note, what were your 2017 Oscar nomination predictions for Best Picture but, more importantly, which films do you think will walk away with the golden statues come Oscar night on Sunday, 26 February?
