A trio of brothers cope with their parents' volatile relationship by running wild and unchecked, and one of them experiences a visceral awakening.
Moonlight meets Malick in this tale of a small boy who finds himself -- in both senses -- inside an at-risk family. He’s one of three brothers stranded in upstate New York, with parents not up to the task. Veteran doc-maker Jeremiah Zagar’s feature debut relies on dream-like moods and impressive child actors to provide depth. The characters remain opaque, with the sole female figure exerting little influence, but there’s intriguing use of animation and electronic music.
