Moonlight is a small but special film. It’s delicate and entirely necessary. It follows two young boys who grow up together in a drug-riddled black neighborhood in Miami. One is able to hide his open sexuality by flexing hetero-confidence and the other is routinely picked on, hangs his head low, and bounces between his drug addict mother’s home and the local dealer who provides him a safe and understanding house whenever needed. And while the children show immense talent in wrestling with larger issues and extremely complex moments, the adult cast of Moonlight does some astounding and important work.
