Director: Barry Jenkins
Stars: KiKi Layne, Stephan James, Colman Domingo

Barry Jenkins’s follow-up to the Oscar-winning Moonlight is an adaptation of James Baldwin’s novel set in 1970s Harlem. Tish and Fonny are young lovers whose life is turned upside down when Fonny is falsely accused of raping a Puerto Rican woman. The camera lingers on the faces of the two young leads as their love is severely tested, in a film that is “achingly beautiful and devastating in its depiction of love and race struggle” (The Jewish Chronicle).
