This Oscar-winning film tells the story of Chiron, following the events of his childhood and teenage years, and how they have impacted his life as an adult.

Read the full synopsis

Full film details

Chiron is a small, quiet child. As a result, he is relentlessly bullied by his peers. Finding comfort only in the mentorship of drug dealer Juan (Mahershala Ali) and another young boy named Kevin, Chiron’s childhood is cold and confusing.

Fast-forward to Chiron’s teenage years, and he is similarly isolated. Events conspire that follow him into adulthood, and shape his existence.

Moonlight follows the life of Chiron from child to adult, and explores how small events can ripple into later life, for better or worse.

Chiron is played by newcomer Alex Hibbert as a child, Ashton Sanders (Straight Outta Compton) as a teenager, and Trevante Rhodes (The Night is Young) as an adult, alongside André Holland (Selma) as Kevin.

Moonlight also features Mahershala Ali (House of Cards), Naomie Harris (Southpaw) and Janelle Monáe (Rio 2), in performances that create a huge impact, which will stay with you long after the credits have rolled.
