★★★★

This uniquely calm, af­fect­ing and wise com­ing-of-age drama re­veals its story via three sep­a­rate streams of con­scious­ness, all slowly pool­ing to­gether to re­flect the truth of grow­ing up a black male in Amer­ica. It be­gins in Mi­ami where bul­lied child Ch­i­ron (Alex Hib­bert) is adopted by neigh­bour­hood drug dealer, Juan (Ma­her­shala Ali), and fol­lows him to adult­hood as he grap­ples with be­ing gay. Writ­ten and di­rected by Barry Jenk­ins.
