Moonlight Review

Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight is a film that finds universality through its specificity and defies expectations at every turn. It tells the story of a young, black, gay man in Miami at three points in his life, split into three distinctive chapters. Each part plays out like a satisfying short film of its own but together they form one stunning whole; an intimate, poetic exploration of identity, masculinity, race and sexuality that is unmistakably personal and all the more powerful for it.
