Every American should see this movie. Click the title to read my entire review.
We see 3 stages in Chiron’s story, a black struggling with his sexual identity–as a bullied 10-year-old; a still bullied 16-year-old; & a man choosing his future after reconciling with his recovering mother.
10 Los Angelese, white & black, struggle with the sense that the nation is sick and their lives are going nowhere, & then a white & a black become friends.
In this father-son film a promising black student is pulled between his gun-wielding friends & his strict father, the latter concerned about gun violence.
Two black brothers and their friend in the hood are in danger from drugs & violence, with the father of one of them trying to teach his son right from wrong.
Jakob, a mild-mannered Jew in a Polish ghetto hides a girl escaped from a train & makes up stories about Allied victories, bringing hope to fellow prisoners.
