Synopsis:

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.

Critical reaction:
  • A stunning achievement ★★★★★

    Benjamin Lee, THE GUARDIAN

  • An aching romance of the very highest order. ★★★★★

    Charles Bramesco, LITTLE WHITE LIES

  • 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. ★★★★★
