Critic Consensus: Moffie uses one South African soldier's story to grapple against a series of thorny questions -- with rough yet rewarding results.
Critic Reviews for Moffie
Hermanus digs deep into the South African psyche and teases out the contradictions within white society itself, especially the fracture between South Africans of English origin and Afrikaners.
Hermanus, a black South African making a film about apartheid troops, never loses perspective.
Moffie is a bleak but necessary reminder that we still have so far to go before everyone is allowed to love who they love without living in fear.
It's often tough to watch, but that harshness is mitigated by moments of aching tenderness and desire.
Both a shiver-delicate exploration of unspoken desire and a scarringly brilliant anatomy of white South African masculinity.
