A Search for Understanding

As our movie opens, we see a young black boy running, and he’s running for his life. Moonlight (screening February 27, 7PM at the Norwood) is an exceptional film based on the play In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue and is likely one of the best films you will see not just this year but any year.

MoonwebFollowing the development of young Chiron from a boy to a man in the drug- and violence- riddled streets of Miami Beach, we see a movie that deals beautifully not only with characters but also the big issues of life like family, responsibility, sexuality, and the politics of power. There are no clichés or stereotypes here though, simply raw truth told in a moving, emotional and incredibly well-acted way.

Moonlight has been nominated for seven Oscars, including Best Picture.
