Official trailer


Summary: "A young man deals with his dysfunctional home life and comes of age in Miami during the "War on Drugs" era. The story of his struggle to find himself is told across three defining chapters in his life as he experiences the ecstasy, pain, and beauty of falling in love while grappling with his own sexuality."

People are saying this is the best movie of the year. It's opening in more cities this weekend and I've got my ticket in hand. Has anyone already seen it? Planning to go?

    I hadn't heard of it but when I looked it up and saw that Janelle Monae and Naomie Harris are in it, that's good enough for me!

    @NikkiP She was Winnie Mandela in that movie with Idris Elba and she was fantastic in that too. I've seen her in a few lowkey Brit things and she's just always good.

    She was fantastic as Winnie Mandela, I couldn't believe she didn't get any awards love. #oscarssowhite

    Absolutely loved the filmmaking in this one. The movie has a very dreamlike quality which I think is the besy way to tell stories of childhood and adolense because that's how you remember them. It also lends to tone of never quite feel safe or settled, there is always a feeling of slipping away.

    This film was almost was never made so it's so great to see it out there. Few films about protagonists that are gay, even fewer still about those who are not white.
