Moonlight was the little film that could. A movie that seemingly came out of nowhere to take the Best Picture Oscar at this year’s Academy Award ceremony. It was a stunning achievement for an indie, gay-themed movie. Now, as the movie arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and VoD in the UK, we’ve teamed up with Altitude Film Distribution Home Entertainment to give away a Blu-ray copy in this competition..
Moonlight is a moving coming-of-age drama about a young African American man growing up in a tough neighbourhood of Miami. The film has already garnered world-wide praise beating a stellar line up including La La Land and Hidden Figures for Best Picture at the 2017 Academy Awards®. Moonlight features an amazing cast of fresh and upcoming talent, including an Academy Award winning performance from Mahershala Ali (House of Cards,) and former athlete Trevante Rhodes (Westworld). The film also stars André Holland (The Knick), Janelle Monáe (Hidden Figures), Naomie Harris (Skyfall), Ashton Sanders (Straight Outta Compton) and Jharrel Jerome (Monster).
Moonlight follows Chiron, a young black man from his early childhood in his depressed Miami neighbourhood to adulthood in Atlanta. Chiron navigates the dangers of drugs and violence in the 1980s, in addition to his burgeoning homosexuality and love for his best friend played by Jharrel Jerome and André Holland. Broken up into three chapters of his life over 10 years, three actors play Chiron: newcomer Alex Hibbert as the quiet boy nicknamed Little, dealing with the taunting of bullies, Ashton Sanders and then as the older Chiron, Trevante Rhodes.
