Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
A beautiful setting in the colorful waters and blue skies of the island of Wakatobi, Indonesia, which captivates us from the first frame of the movie which is directed extremely well. The characters of the children have come out as the strongest point in this film, which is about the hard life of the fishing community. There are several stunning scenes and incidents that keep the tempo very interesting right up to the end. The camera work is brilliant. To see the children moving around on wooden platforms leading to their homes on top of water and their effortless navigation on the tiny boats, are a treat to watch and enjoy. This film is definitely a good one to watch with friends and family and no one will come out disappointed.
My rating: (8 out of 10)
