From Mark Johnson’s Telluride review:
“Moonlight” is a wholly felt and tender experience that is both heart-wrenchingly painful and utterly refreshing. It is exceptional filmmaking, with remarkably real characters that translate into extraordinary performances from the entire talented cast.
From Editor Clayton Davis’ review from NYFF:
The film is so painstakingly raw, it feels at times like snippets from many of our own childhoods. Being a part of a family with an absent father, and growing up in neighborhoods where the danger ends up as a sort of comfort, and ending up in the embracing arms of surrogate families – this story speaks volumes. The screenplay by Jenkins, which is based from Tarell McCraney‘s unpublished play “In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue,” who receives a “story by” credit, is one for the ages. Chiron feels like a real human being, walking through life, gaining our own love and worry along the way. We take him in our own hearts and souls as his quiet and reserved frustration begins to boil over. Where the film comes alive is in Jenkins’ direction.
