This year's powerful winner of the coveted Best Picture Academy Award.
Moonlight tells the story of Chiron, an African American boy from the rough suburbs of Miami and his journey from childhood to adulthood. It's a story of self discovery and connection about finding your own place in the world.
Moonlight's last minute Best Picture Award and the mayhem that ensued shouldn't tarnish its powerful glow. Told with immense poetry and soft subtlety, Moonlight shines a light on the harshness of growing up gay and black in the tough suburbs of Miami but in a way that speaks to all of us. Anchored by superb Oscar winning performances (Mahershala Ali), it is as universal as it is compassionate.
"It's as bold, brave and innovative a piece of filmmaking as you're likely to see this year. All that's left now is for people to do just that. See it." The Sydney Morning Herald
"Director Barry Jenkins has created a sublime, novelistic work of art by employing the specific in pursuit of the universal: Few will walk away from “Moonlight” untouched by its message." Wall Street Journal
