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.
