A three-time Oscar winner, including Best Picture, Moonlight visits a young black man at three ages, struggling to integrate his masculinity with his homosexuality. At nine, Chiron (Alex Hibbert) is found hiding from bullies by drug dealer Juan (Mahershala Ali), who takes pity on the shy, withdrawn child.
Teenage Chiron (Ashton Sanders) has his first sexual encounter with childhood friend Kevin, and as an adult (Trevante Rhodes), he attempts to reconnect with him. The seamless performances create a heart-wrenching portrayal of an achingly lonely and vulnerable character dogged by betrayal and pain as he seeks to find his place in the world.
Winner - Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay, Academy Awards.
