Yesterday I saw Barry Jenkins’s film Moonlight, based on the play by Tarell Alvin McCraney. It is stellar in every respect, from the screenplay and cinematography to the score and the acting. This is a Best Picture contender. Perhaps the most amazing performance among the excellent cast is by Alex R. Hibbert, who plays 9-year-old Chiron in the first section. He conveys a great deal with very little dialog. This is a movie that calls for multiple viewings.
