I hope you all (besides Danny!) enjoyed Moonlight as much as I did. I think that it is an wonderful exploration of African American masculinity and the performances from the actors playing Chiron are superbly crafted by Barry Jenkins. In particular, I think that the performance of Trevante Rhodes who plays ‘Black’ is very impressive because he is able to subtly transition between the hegemonic masculinity of ‘Black’ and the vulnerable Chiron.
