The film will have its World Premiere at the Toronto Film Festival the come to the 54th New York Film Festival. It then hits theaters on October 21, 2016 (NY & LA), followed by other cities later on.
Based on the play by Tarell McCraney “In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue,” Jenkins wrote and directed the film.
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.
Anchored by astonishing performances and the singular vision of filmmaker Barry Jenkins, MOONLIGHT is a groundbreaking exploration of male masculinity—a sensual, intoxicating piece of cinema that uncovers deep truths about the moments that define us, the people who shape us most, and the ache of love that can last a lifetime.
