An Oscar winner like no other.
It had to overcome a major snafu at the awards show before actually netting Best Picture, but none of that kerfuffle dims the sweep and power of what director Barry Jenkins put onscreen.
Playing out over three timelines, the film follows a young Black man coming to terms with his sexuality while overcoming every hurdle thrown his way.
Raw and emotional, it’s an intimate, extremely well-acted story.
Dodging easy sentiment, it instead embraces a more-realistic view of life, where good and evil can exist at the same time, and often in the same people.
