This movie takes it time and enraptures the audience into its mood and setting first.

The actors, cinematography, music scores, blend Dayveon's rite of passage into a masterpiece.

It reminds of Moonlight, where the director tries to bring art house into the ghetto. I rewatch this movie every so often, because there's not many movies that can capture personal trauma with such realism and artistic scope.

As an aspiring screenwriter and director, I hope to some day recreate something like this.
