“ Writer/director Barry Jenkins’ bold and uniquely told film about the struggles to accept one’s own sexuality is both heartbreaking and deeply relevant."
★★★★★ The Guardian.


A timeless story of human connection and self-discovery, Moonlight chronicles the life of a young black man Chiron, from childhood to adulthood as he tries to find his place in the world, questions his own sexuality and grows up in a rough neighbourhood of Miami.

With a masterfully subtle performance from Mahershala Ali as local drug dealer and surrogate father of sorts, plus great performances from Naomie Harris, Janelle Monae, Andre Holland and Trevante Rhodes as the adult Chiron.

Nominated for 8 Oscars including Best Film, Best Supporting Actor and Actress, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Editing and Best Original Score.
