Dir. Barry Jenkins. U.S., 2016. 111 mins. With Naomie Harris, André Holland, Mahershala Ali, Janelle Monáe, Trevante Rhodes, Ashton Sanders, Jharrel Jerome. Winner of three Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Moonlight chronicles the life of Chiron, a young Black man struggling to find his place in the world and coming to terms with his homosexuality while growing up in Liberty City, 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. Rated: R
