I give it a 9/10 because the ending could've been way better but overall worth watching

I don't think that the movie was quite as good as Moonlight but it had a similar story, a young African American man coming of age in a tough situation with an older mentor who is not family.

Good movie worth watching .

This movie was great , at first i didnt think i was going to like it but as the movie went on i really enjoyed it .

Worth Watching, Good Music, Good Acting .

The ending felt a little flat, but other than that, enjoyed it.

But I have to agree with others that I found the ending confusing because I wasn't sure what the ending was.

Thoroughly enjoyed it!

It fell a little flat unfortunately, I found it boring at times.

Or they could have done more work to flesh out the sub themes which were a little too cliche, an not much to hold those side stories together for the viewer.

Some brave ideas mixed with some cliche moments...

Excellent film worth watching .

Several scene when he with August actually quite bored and a bit weird!

This film is bad from the get go, the film has a strange soft focus effect to it which is off putting the lead actor is extremely wooden and I couldn't understand his voice, he rambled his lines, the beats / hooks etc were awful and the story line is so tiring now it's boring.

Aside from this the acting is somewhat poor and the story cliché.

It is well worth watching.

I still enjoyed it though.

I liked the plot and the look of the movie, but it felt kind of empty.
