I loved Moonlight, so when I heard about Life and Nothing More, naturally I was drawn to watch and love it, too. Both are similar in the plot, showcasing a coming-of-age story about two black boys. However, where LANM differs is that we not only get the perspective of the son, but we get the perspective of his mother as well. It adds another layer to the viewing experience, where you can understand and empathize with the son in the decisions he has made, meanwhile you see the struggling mother of two and can see where her reasoning and child discipline comes from. Having both sides of the story is something we don't often get the pleasure in having as an audience. With Life and Nothing More, it adds to the complexity of the story, that is all too relatable to life.
