[blu-ray, Netflix]

This seems cut from the same idea-cloth as MOONLIGHT, communicating the same painful yearning and offering no pat resolution aside from providing a glimmer of optimism for the main character’s future. Most of the action in the film takes place at night, and the director has accentuated the uncertainty gnawing at the core of the main character’s psyche by frequently portraying scenes as disappearing into or being engulfed by darkness. Then there’s the terrific acting job by Harris Dickinson as Frankie, leading a very fine ensemble of supporting characters who create a very realistic, documentary-style world around him.
