About the Movie

A timeless story of human connection and self-discovery, MOONLIGHT chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami. At once a vital portrait of contemporary African American life and an intensely personal and poetic meditation on identity, family, friendship, and love, MOONLIGHT is a groundbreaking piece of cinema that reverberates with deep compassion and universal truths. Anchored by extraordinary performances from a tremendous ensemble cast, Jenkins’s staggering, singular vision is profoundly moving in its portrayal of the moments, people, and unknowable forces that shape our lives and make us who we are.

Fresh: Although Barry Jenkins' film is indeed about the struggles and difficulties of a person embracing his culturally reviled sexuality, the story is universal in scope and intent. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Dec 8, 2016

Fresh: An intimate and haunting drama. – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, Feb 2, 2017

Fresh: From the start Moonlight announces itself as something different entirely. – Kevin Maher, Times (UK), Feb 17, 2017

The Lie

Sad to se the effects of fathers not teaching sons how to be sons!!!


Story told at three intervals of a young man's life, grade school, high school and 20s. Protagonist is black, gay, has no father in his life, has no friends (okay maybe 1), mother is a drug user sinking into dependency, life is good (or not so much). Can you imagine that without watching a movie?

Best Movie I've seen in years!!

It told a story that needed to be told the right way!!!!
