Nominated for 8 Oscars, Moonlight is the story of an African-American gay man growing up in America. Writer-director Barry Jenkins successfully employs three different actors to portray the same character at three different ages. Charismatic newcomer Alex Hibbert plays the young, naive schoolboy living with his emotionally unreliable addict mother; Ashton Sanders is the bullied teenager fully discovering his sexuality; and Trevante Rhodes gives a breakout performance as the confident drug-dealing adult. Never less than riveting, Moonlight is already being showered with richly deserved awards including being named Best Drama at the Golden Globes.

“Both heartbreaking and deeply relevant… a rarely seen portrait of what it really means to be a black gay man in America today. It’s a stunning achievement.” – The Guardian
