A deeply personal modern masterpiece, don’t miss this exclusive preview in advance of its release in February 2017.

Moonlight is the tender, heartbreaking story of a young man’s struggle to find himself, told across three defining chapters in his life as he experiences the ecstasy, pain, and beauty of falling in love, while grappling with his own sexuality.

Anchored by astonishing performances and the singular vision of filmmaker Barry Jenkins, Moonlight is a groundbreaking exploration of masculinity – a sensual, intoxicating piece of cinema that uncovers deep truths about the moments that define us, the people who shape us most, and the ache of love that can last a lifetime.

Moonlight has already generated considerable acclaim from film festival audiences and critics alike, having picked up awards at the BIFAs, the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, and from the New York Film Critics Circle. Oscar and BAFTA nominations are expected to follow.

“Leaves you feeling both stripped bare and restored, slightly better prepared to step out and face the world of people around you, with all the confounding challenges they present. There's not much more you can ask from a movie.” – STEPHANIE ZACHAREK, TIME MAGAZINE
