“Moonlight” is the story about a man named Chiron, narrated through 3 different phases in his life. The young African American grows up in a deprived area in suburban Miami and has to learn from a young age on that the world might not accept him like he is. Jenkins manages to create a compassionate film by letting the protagonist grow up right in front of us. We can see him fall in love, lose that love and because of all of that come to terms with himself and find his place in this world.
