Hotly tipped for awards season, Moonlight is a revelation and perhaps the film of the year. Directed by Barry Jenkins (Medicine for Melancholy), it tells its beautiful, vital and devastating story in three acts. Young African-American boy Little (Alex Hibbert) lives in Miami with his crack addict mother (Naomie Harris), faces homophobic bullying at school and befriends local drug dealer Juan (Mahershala Ali). As a troubled teenager, Chiron (Ashton Sanders) he lashes out, as an adult (Trevante Rhodes) he dreams of reconnecting with a lost love (André Holland). Aesthetically striking and viscerally powerful, Moonlight is a breathtaking achievement and surely a landmark in the portrayal of blackness (especially black gay masculinity) onscreen.
