Synopsis


Ambitious in so many ways, Moonlight is the story of an African-American gay man growing up in a USA that is perhaps even more intolerant than ever. In only his second feature after the brilliant but undervalued Medicine For Melancholy, 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 American football star Trevante Rhodes gives a breakout performance as the confident drug-dealing adult, a tribute to the role model who helped him endure his difficult upbringing.

Never less than riveting, Moonlight is already being showered with richly deserved awards.
