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.

"It’s a masterpiece — an overused word, but not the wrong one."
- John Anderson, Wall Street Journal
"In its quietly radical grace, it’s a cultural watershed — a work that dismantles all the ways our media view young black men and puts in their place a series of intimate truths. You walk out feeling dazed, more whole, a little cleaner. "
- Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"Directed with superb control and insight by Jenkins, Moonlight achieves the near-impossible in film, which is to ground its story and characters in a place and time of granular specificity and simultaneously make them immediately relatable and universal."
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Jenkins glimpses at the human soul and the hellish experiences endured despite it. We’re shown humankind’s capacity to change and the notion it’s never too late."
- Jared Mobarak, The Film Stage
"A coming-of-age movie, and a love story, that leaves you feeling both stripped bare and restored, slightly better prepared to step out and face the world of people around you, with all the confounding challenges they present. There’s not much more you can ask from a movie."
- Stephanie Zacharek, Time
"Moonlight, the new film from Barry Jenkins, is a nuclear-fission-strength heartbreaker. It’s made up of moments so slight and incidental they’re sub-molecular – but they release enough heat and light to swallow whole cities at a stroke."
- Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
"It’s a true American masterpiece and one of the best films of the decade."
- Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Moonlight is a film that is both lyrical and deeply grounded in its character work, a balancing act that’s breathtaking to behold. It is one of those rare pieces of filmmaking that stays completely focused on its characters while also feeling like it’s dealing with universal themes about identity, sexuality, family, and, most of all, masculinity."
- Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
"Moonlight takes the pain of growing up and turns it into hardened scars and private caresses. This film is, without a doubt, the reason we go to the movies: to understand, to come closer, to ache, hopefully with another."
- Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"It’s a thrilling, deeply necessary work that opens up a much-needed and rarely approached on-screen conversation about the nature of gay masculinity."
- Benjamin Lee, The Guardian
"Like Brokeback Mountain a decade ago, Moonlight is a piece of art that will transform lives long after it leaves theaters."
- Gregory Ellwood, The Playlist
"It’s a film that aches with beauty. It cries with longing. It quakes with a rich sadness that lingers with you long after the final moments. A masterpiece of poetic filmmaking, Moonlight is one of the most powerful films of the year."
- Erin Whitney, ScreenCrush
"Barry Jenkins' vital portrait of a South Florida youth revisits the character at three stages in his life, offering rich insights into the contemporary African-American experience."
- Peter Debruge, Variety
"The result is an unconventional film that exists in a class by itself to this point in 2016."
- Mike Scott, New Orleans Times-Picayune
"Moonlight is both a disarmingly, at times almost unbearably personal film and an urgent social document, a hard look at American reality and a poem written in light, music and vivid human faces"
- A.O. Scott, NY Times
"Moonlight is magic. So intimate you feel like you're trespassing on its characters souls, so transcendent it's made visual and emotional poetry out of intensely painful experience, it's a film that manages to be both achingly familiar and unlike anything we've seen before. "
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
