This Movie was not on my list of must see even though it was an African American movie until I realized it was directed by Barry Jenkins. The brilliant writer directer of Moonlight (Oscar winning). Jenkins took the book written by James Baldwin and wrote the screenplay for this amazing romantic dramatic movie about two young lovers. Sadly it goes from Romance and love to drama and tragedy that you see intimately through out the movie. Should have been on the list for best movie of the year.
