2017 dir. Barry Jenkins

A vitally important film that offers a powerful depiction of sexuality, masculinity, race and identity. Not only does Moonlight tackle tropes and notions rarely addressed by mainstream filmmakers but it exists also as a landmark in bringing new topics to broader audiences. With rare sensitivity, strong dialogue and beautiful cinematography this film earns the hype and icon status it has already received.
