“Moonlight” is the tender, heartbreaking story of a young man’s struggle to find himself, told across three defining chapters in his life. A sensual, intoxicating piece of cinema that uncovers deep truths about the moments that define us, the people who shape us most, and the ache of love that can last a lifetime.
