Critics called “Moonlight” one of the best films of 2016. It tells the story of Chiron, a poor, gay African-American in Miami. We see Chiron as a child bullied by his classmates and raised by a drug-addicted mother; a teen exploring masculinity and love; and an adult performing an identity that helps him deal with his pain.
