MOONLIGHT chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he navigates the dangers of drugs and violence in a rough neighborhood of Miami. MOONLIGHT has won the Golden Globe for Best Picture (drama) and took home the Oscar for Best Film as well.

Bullied at school and beaten down by a harsh home life, Chiron risks becoming a statistic: another black man dominated and ultimately destroyed by the system. Despite his small stature and taciturn nature, Chiron is a survivor, and, as he grows, it becomes clear that his real battle isn't even on the streets. It's an internal one: reckoning with his complex love for his best friend.

MOONLIGHT defies coming-of-age conventions. Instead of offering a clear progression of time, director Barry Jenkins plunges us into an atmospheric subjectivity, an impressionistic vision of Chiron's psyche in which sensuality, pain, and unhealed wounds take centre stage with staggering power. MOONLIGHT took home Best Picture at this years Academy Awards.

The New York Times - 'Moonlight is both a disarmingly, at times almost unbearably personal film and an urgent social document, a hard look at American reality and a poem written in light, music and vivid human faces.'
★★★★★ The Guardian - 'Writer/director Barry Jenkins' bold and uniquely told film is both heartbreaking and deeply relevant.'
★★★★ Rolling Stone - 'It's impossible to pinpoint exactly how Barry Jenkins's Moonlight gets inside your head and makes you see the world with new eyes. But it does - and then it owns you.'
