Dir. Barry Jenkins. 2016. 111 mins. Digital projection. With Naomie Harris, André Holland, Mahershala Ali, Janelle Monáe, Trevante Rhodes, Ashton Sanders, Jharrel Jerome. Winner of three Academy Awards, including Best Picture of 2017, Moonlight chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami. At once a vital portrait of contemporary African American life and an intensely personal and poetic meditation on identity, family, friendship, love and sexuality, Moonlight is a groundbreaking piece of cinema that reverberates with deep compassion and universal truths.
