The lead character is called by 3 names, each for different time in his life. Three actors play him as a boy, a teen and a man and they’re all exceptional, finding the character’s soul with few words and expressive eyes. Our heart breaks as he struggles with his addicted mother, bullying classmates and his own sexuality. First time writer/director Barry Jenkins lets every scene play out with compelling quiet: Simple and underplayed, but with an underlying intensity that’s achingly bittersweet. This is a somber, poetic film experience with tender, yet powerful performances. An unexpected drama from an insightful and gifted director. (Only at Movieland)
