Write at least 3 paragraphs (500 words) analyzing Moonlight (Barry Jenkins), addressing PLOT, FORM, and CULTURE. PLOT: The classic Hollywood plot opens with an equilibrium, then there is disruption of that equilibrium, and at the end of the film there is a new equilibrium. Identify the equilibrium/disruption/new equilibrium in Moonlight. FORM: Discuss the technical and artistic achievements of Moonlight in ONE key scene. Good candidates might be the scene where Juan (Mahershala Ali) teaches young Chiron (Alex R. Hibbert) to swim or where teenage Chiron (Ashton Sanders) meets up with Kevin (Jharrel Jerome) on the beach — or your favorite scene. Go into depth about how the shot composition, shot type, camera movement, editing, lighting and sound create the mood or express the emotion of the scene. CULTURE: Discuss how Moonlight both reflected and shaped attitudes about young urban men in the United States. How does the film support or subvert stereotypes about black masculinity? How does this film differ in the kind of story it tells from earlier.
