Moonlight

Directed by Barry Jenkins

2016

Based on the play In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue by Tarell Alvin McCraney, Moonlight is a drama that follows the life of a poor, young, black man. Moonlight impressively avoids cliché and miserabilism in a genre that can veer wildly between the two. The acting is understated, but piercingly effective. The story avoids easy answers and easy sentiments.

Would see.
