Please join me this weekend in viewing the semi-autobiographical movie, Moonlight. The film’s director and writer is Barry Jenkins. It is adapted from In the Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue, a play written by Tarell Alvin McCraney. Both accomplished young men are from the projects in Liberty City and challenging family situations. Jenkins is a graduate of Miami Northwestern Senior High and McCraney attended New World School of the Arts.
Much of the scenery in Moonlight was shot in Liberty City. From the rave reviews, this movie is sure to be Oscar-nominated.
