Finally got around to watching Moonlight… and it’s on indefinite pause about halfway through while I get my shit together.
I thought it was about a gay black kid growing up.
It’s about about a gay black child of a fucking drug addict.
I was not prepared for the flashbacks to my childhood, thanks. Especially the heart wrenching, deeply familiar struggle with loving and looking up to someone who fucking provides the very mechanism by which your life is destroyed.
