The synopsis for Moonlight is as follows:
Moonlight is the tender, heartbreaking story of a young man’s struggle to find himself, told across three defining chapters in his life as he experiences the ecstasy, pain, and beauty of falling in love, while grappling with his own sexuality.
Well the film never registered on my radar before…it certainly has now after watching that trailer. Visually it looks gorgeous, the story looks set to explore issues of masculinity, sexuality, and family through the eyes of this one character which will be played by different actors. It also helps that A24 have their stamp on it to have me check it out as the films they’ve distributed in recent years have ranged from good to great for me. Moonlight stars Trevante Rhodes, Ashton Sanders, André Holland, Jharrel Jerome, Janelle Monáe, Naomie Harris, Mahershala Ali, Edson Jean, Alex R. Hibbert, Jaden Piner and Jesus C. Mitchell.
Moonlight is scheduled for cinematic release on the 21st October 2016.
