Is Moonlight the best gay film ever? Critics think it might be. A timeless story of human connection and self-discovery, Moonlight chronicles the life of a young black man as he comes to terms with his sexuality.
Growing up in a tough neighbourhood in Miami and battling through a dysfunctional home life, Chiron struggles to find a place for himself in a dangerous and unfriendly world.
This is a coming of age story that encompasses all the ecstasy, pain, and beauty of falling in love. Beautifully shot, with a gorgeous score by Nicholas Britell, and exceptionally well-written, Moonlight is the must-see film of the year.
It has been receiving fantastic reviews and has already been nominated for six golden globes. Not only is it one of the leaders for golden globe nominations, it also has serious Oscar buzz.
“5 stars, equisite… This film is the reason why we go to the movies.” – Time Out
