Moonlight is a drama directed by Barry Jenkins and stars Trevante Rhodes, André Holland, Janelle Monáe, Ashton Sanders, Naomie Harris, and Mahershala Ali. The story of the film focuses on the life of an African-American boy called Chiron. The three acts of the film lead us to follow him through three different stages of his life; as a child, a teenager and an adult.

My Knowledge and Expectation of Moonlight

This film has received a lot of critical acclaim since it premiered at the Telluride Film Festival in September 2016. As a result, this film has been on my radar for a while, especially as the story and how people marvelled at the way it was told made me really excited for what was said to be a very unique film. Moreover, praise towards the performances of Mahershala Ali and Naomie Harris bolstered my anticipation for this film even more.
