MOONLIGHT illuminates the peerless power of cinema to inspire empathy for others and embrace a greater understanding of ourselves. Barry Jenkins' poetic tour de force presents a deeply emotional triptych - the journey of boy to man searching for connection amidst the labyrinth of societal boundaries. An extraordinary ensemble lights the way in this sublime realization of a world where the question "Who is you?" echoes in the pain of dreams deferred and the strength of an inner truth.
