THE MOONLIGHT: A CRITICAL REVIEW 3 accustomed to the world of drugs. Also, he is despised by his mother for being gay and he completely isolates himself as he grapples with questions about his sexuality. Additionally, just like his mentor Juan, Chiron grows into a brutal drug baron. The phenomenon manifests that we become the products of our environment. To Chiron, violence was a roadmap to hide his insecurities and segregation. As you watch through The Moonlight, you appreciate the fact that the movie encompasses a touchy feel. The childhood and adult struggles of Chiron makes one connect with his world to a large extent. The movie is an undeniable manifestation of a situation where you look at things in another person’s perspective. In additional, many aspects of the Moonlight are in alignment with other films developed to show the plight children undergo in comprehending about their identity and reconciling with abusive parents. Nevertheless, the fact that Chiron chooses to engage in heinous behavior as a defensive mechanism to his dented past may motivate those raised from harsh environments to resort to violent means instead of embracing change. For this matter, I would highly recommend an ending showcasing a changed Chiron. In essence, The Moonlight will remain a pivotal masterwork even in the years to come. The movie is an explicit guide towards comprehension of the challenges that boys face as they grow up. The harmony that the film attaches to other related pieces of work clearly shows that originality can be recreated consistently while at the same time retaining distinctive splendor of each work. After watching the movie, it is easy acknowledging the fact that many individuals become disconnected from societal norms and codes of conduct because of unstable upbringings.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
