Moonlight premieres at The Avon in Stamford, CT on 11/4/16 – exclusive Connecticut engagement

moonlight-posterSo excited! Should I be concerned that the description below doesn’t include the word gay? I’ll comment on that in my formal review. From The Avon in Stamford, CT,

This week the Avon is pleased to bring you the exclusive Connecticut engagement of MOONLIGHT, from director Barry Jenkins. At once a vital portrait of contemporary African-American life and an intensely personal and poetic meditation on identity, family, friendship, and love, MOONLIGHT chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami. Anchored by extraordinary performances from a tremendous ensemble cast, Jenkins’s groundbreaking film is profoundly moving in its portrayal of the moments, people, and unknowable forces that shape our lives and make us who we are.

“Exhilaration and melancholy are dispensed in equal doses…it’s a masterpiece.”
– Wall Street Journal

“It’s a perfect film, one that exemplifies not only the formal and aesthetic capabilities of a medium at its most visually rich, but a capacity for empathy and compassion.”
– Washington Post
