Moonlight, winner of the 2017 Oscar for Best Picture will be lighting up the iconic Brockwell Lido. Bring warm clothes and something to sit onBased on the play In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue by Tarell Alvin McCraney and journeying across three time periods, we witness key moments in the formation of Chiron’s masculinity and how in turn, these moments come to define his sexuality. Barry Jenkins’ debut feature Medicine For Melancholy earned him many fans, and Moonlight makes good on that film’s promise, delivering a restrained yet intoxicating story with genuine emotional power. It’s consistently surprising and brims with formal invention, from camera movement to the richly evocative imagery.”
