    How refreshing it is to watch a film with an introverted protagonist. Chiron is struggling with a lot. It's complex. He's passive and a victim of his environment, but you can feel him trying to fight against it. There is a lot to identify with in this film. Yes, being gay is a big part of it, but there's a purity to it that makes it one of cinema's more understated, yet iconic romances. 7 years ago

    The film has strong content and themes, and I respect that people are loving that and speaking about it. However, the film was pretty average, despite all its praise and I was expecting more for such a highly regarded Oscar nominated film.

    The colour grading was amazing and you really feel immersed in the film at times, but it just wasn't enough. It was at times, a bland film.
