Moonlight (2016, USA), Cert. 15
April 12 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Another first for DavidLeanCinema? Needing to put on an extra screening before the April programme is even officially on sale!
Director: Barry Jenkins
Stars: Mahershala Ali, Shariff Earp, Duan Sanderson, Naomie Harris
A beautiful and sensitive film about growing up black and sexually confused on the urban streets of Miami.
Told in three parts, we see Chiron: as a child from a deprived background who is taken under the wing of the local drug dealer; then as a troubled and confused youth; and finally the adult who has to face the truth of his feelings.
Independent film-maker Jenkins has achieved one of the great breakthroughs of recent years with this impressive drama, which is nominated for eight Academy Awards.
At the time of writing this page the film had not been released in the UK – David Lean Cinema getting ahead of themselves! A re-write of this page will be made in connection with the launch of the April programme, in the meantime, here is a link to the (also pre-UK release) Review from The Guardian
The Guardian review includes a link to the US Trailer, which can be seen below
Show starts at 7.30PM, Ticket prices: £8.00 & £6.50 (concessions)
