Winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture, “Moonlight” is about a boy named Chiron growing up in Miami. He is poor, Black, and gay, and although each of those elements inform his circumstances, the movie is uninterested in portraying him, or any other character, in terms of categories. We see struggle but what’s felt is strikingly rendered humanity, and this is one of the most beautiful movies in recent years. As A.O. Scott wrote in his rhapsodic New York Times review, it is “an urgent social document, a hard look at American reality and a poem written in light, music and vivid human faces.”
According to the MPAA, it is rated-R for: some sexuality, drug use, brief violence, and language throughout.
