Awarded Best Picture, Best Screenplay, and Audience Award, Gotham Independent Awards (the last two winners of this award have won the Oscar for Best Picture).
“…a beautifully intimate character study that argues in no uncertain terms that the African-American identity is far too complex to be reduced to the flimsy stereotypes so often presented on-screen.” – Peter Debruge, Variety
“So intimate you feel like you’re trespassing on its characters’ souls, so transcendent it’s made visual and emotional poetry out of intensely painful experience, it’s a film that manages to be both achingly familiar and unlike anything we’ve seen before.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
“If you think art should challenge us, then you will embrace writer-director Barry Jenkins’ exquisitely crafted drama MOONLIGHT. It’s a true American masterpiece and one of the best films of the decade..” – Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer
“MOONLIGHT takes the pain of growing up and turns it into hardened scars and private caresses. This film is, without a doubt, the reason we go to the movies: to understand, to come closer, to ache — hopefully with another..” – Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
