A timeless story of human self-discovery and connection, 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.

The critical consensus

A disarming and tender triptych, fluent in the language of wordless emotion.

*****Charles Bramesco, Little White Lies, 02/02/2017

With beautifully pitched performances, a moving story and a willingness to trade showy for subtle, Moonlight deserves all the attention and awards nominations it’s getting.

*****Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 09/02/2017

Sensitive, subtle and heartfelt, Jenkins’ genre-buster is a significant work that will knock you out.

*****Rob James, Total Film, 13/02/2017

What makes Moonlight distinctive is its offbeat quality and ability always to wrong-foot the viewer.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 15/02/2017

A gay man’s journey from a deprived childhood through rage and towards self-realisation is a moving, mysterious dance to the music of time.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 16/02/2017

An intense, emotional film with tenderness in every frame.

*****Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 17/02/2017

A genre-defying film. Its visual splendour belies its tough, surface-level subject matter, while the performances pull us deep below that surface with their soulful naturalism.

*****Dan Jolin, Empire Online, 13/02/2017

Barry Jenkins’s Oscar-nominated coming-of-age film is a heartbreaking, uplifting, minor-key masterpiece.

*****Mark Kermode, The Observer, 19/02/2017
