Winner of this year's best picture, best adapted screenplay and best supporting actor (Mahershala Ali) Oscars, Moonlight is a timeless story of human connection and self-discovery - chronicling the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world.
At once a vital portrait of contemporary African American life and a poetic meditation on identity, family, sexuality, and love; MOONLIGHT is a ground-breaking piece of cinema, anchored by extraordinary performances from a tremendous cast. Jenkins’ staggering, singular vision is profoundly moving in its portrayal of the moments, people, and unknowable forces that shape our lives and make us who we are.
A stunning achievement ★★★★★
An aching romance of the very highest order. ★★★★★
In these uncertain times, we need storytellers such as Jenkins more than ever – people who can turn a tale of conflict and hardship into a symphony of love and friendship that endures through all the pain. I doubt that I will see a better film than Moonlight this year. ★★★★★
