The most talked about film of 2016’s LFF tells the story of a young man’s coming-of-age in 1980s Miami.
Dir Barry Jenkins
With Ashton Sanders, Mahershala Ali, Shariff Earp, Naomie Harris
An Altitude Film Entertainment release
This intoxicating, emotive film was a huge hit at 2016’s London Film Festival. The most talked-about film of 2016’s London Film Festival, Barry Jenkins’ second feature is a true gem. Growing up in 1980s Miami, Chiron (Sanders) is different from the other kids at school. Neglected by his junkie mother (Naomie Harris, as you’ve never seen her before), he turns to Juan (Ali), a local drug lord, for lessons in life and love. Innovative in style and overflowing with feeling, Moonlight is what the cinema was made for: a truly intoxicating experience.
