Based on the play ‘In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue’, Moonlight is a timeless story of human connection and self-discovery. It follows Chiron – a young black man – from childhood to adulthood as he finds his identity and sexuality in a rough neighbourhood of Miami in the 1980s, and the physical and emotional abuse he receives as a result.
At once a vital portrait of contemporary African American life and an intensely personal and poetic meditation on identity, family, friendship, and love, Moonlight is a groundbreaking piece of cinema that reverberates with deep compassion and universal truths.
With extraordinary performances from a tremendous ensemble cast, director Barry Jenkins’s 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.
