We finish up our Second Chance Week with the return of Moonlight, now coming back as the Academy Award winner for Best Picture. This powerful story follows Chiron, a young black man struggling with his place in the world, through three different ages. As Chiron grows from adolescence to mid-teenage years to becoming a young man, he tries to come to terms with not just being a young black man with a single mother in a crime-ridden area of Miami, but being a young gay black man with a single mother in a crime-ridden area of Miami. Mahershala Ali won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor as a drug dealer turned surrogate father figure. It’s a heavy film, but it’s one worthy of being seen by everyone, a window into a world that few of us can imagine living in.
Moonlight returns Tuesday, March 18, and plays Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday at 7:30.
