Moonlight trailer

Trailer for the new indie film, Moonlight.

From Indiewire,

Writer/director/producer Barry Jenkins’ upcoming drama marks A24’s first in-studio production alongside Plan B Productions, with Brad Pitt onboard as executive producer.

Based on the play “In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue” by Tarell Alvin McCraney, the film tells the life story of a young man named Chiron (Trevante Rhodes) via three defining chapters of his life. Set in the 1980’s Miami during the height of Reagan’s War on Drugs, “Moonlight” follows Chiron as he comes of age, falls in love and discovers his own sexuality, all while learning to embrace his own vision of masculinity as characters float in and out of his life. The ensemble cast includes Naomie Harris (“Spectre”), André Holland (“The Knick”), Mahershala Ali (“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”), Edson Jean (“War Dogs”), and soul/R&B singer Janelle Monaé in her debut film performance.

“Moonlight” will have its international premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. It will also screen at the New York Film Festival a month later. A24 will then release the film in theaters on October 21.
