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 male 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.

 

The film has already generated considerable acclaim from film festival audiences and critics alike, having picked up awards at the BIFAs and Golden Globes.

 

“[Moonlight] is both intimate and epic. It gets inside your head, makes you see the world with new eyes – and then it owns you.”

- PETER TRAVERS, ROLLING STONE
