*From the trailer it looked like this would be sort of controversial with it's content.
*I wasn't aware that it would end up being nominated for so many awards and be so well received.
*It has a pretty interesting and good cast.
*I haven't heard of Barry Jenkins or his other movie before this.
*This is Tarell McCraney's only movie credit to date, but it might not be his last.
*With all the buzz I figured I would go ahead and see it since I did have it on my to watch list.
*It takes place in Miami where I'm originally from.
*Mahershala Ali has proven that his earlier stuff didn't showcase his true acting skills.
*The newcomers/unknowns were actually really good specifically the guys that played Little.
*This reminded me of Boyhood, but with a more interesting storyline.
*I have now found out I have a huge crush on Janelle Monae lol.
*The whole thing was very beautifully shot.
*Some things happen that don't really get explained.
*Not enough Janelle Monae.
It's a really good coming of age tale similar to the likes of Boyhood. The content may not be comfortable for those who don't accept LGBT stuff. That really shouldn't affect a well told story like this though. It captures you from beginning to end. The way the whole thing looks too makes it even better. Anyways if you are open minded I would say check this out asap. It's totally worth it.
