A young man comes of age in Miama during the War on Drugs. A timeless story of self-discovery, Moonlight follows him through three different chapters of his life, each played by a different actor, as he discovers the ecstasy, beauty and pain of falling in love. Moonlight premiered at the Telluride Film Festival to universal acclaim and rapidly became one of 2015’s most exciting, and unexpected, indie hits in America. See it at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre when this incredible film comes to the UK.
