"MOONLIGHT illuminates the peerless power of cinema to inspire empathy for others and embrace a greater understanding of ourselves. Barry Jenkins' poetic tour de force presents a deeply emotional triptych - the journey of boy to man searching for connection amidst the labyrinth of societal boundaries. An extraordinary ensemble lights the way in this sublime realization of a world where the question "Who is you?" echoes in the pain of dreams deferred and the strength of an inner truth." - American Film Institute Awards

“ From the start Moonlight announces itself as something different entirely.”

Kevin Maher - Times (UK)

“ The combination of artistry and emotional directness in this film is overwhelming.”

Peter Bradshaw - Guardian

“A genre-defying film. Its visual splendour belies its tough, surface-level subject matter, while the performances pull us deep below that surface with their soulful naturalism.”

Dan Jolin Empire - Magazine
