Moonlight, directed by Barry Jenkins, is the tender, heartbreaking story of a young man’s struggle to find himself, told across three defining chapters in his life as he experiences the ecstasy, pain, and beauty of falling in love, while grappling with his own sexuality. On its way to the Oscars, Moonlight took home the Special Jury prize for Best Ensemble Performance at the Gotham Awards this year. Tirdad Derakhshani of the Philadelphia Inquirer calls Moonlight “A true American masterpiece and one of the best films of the decade.” Kenneth Turan, writing in the L.A. Times, says “Moonlight is magic. So intimate you feel like you’re trespassing on its characters’ souls, so transcendent it’s made visual and emotional poetry out of intensely painful experience. It’s a film that manages to be both achingly familiar and unlike anything we’ve seen before.”

Richard Loving, a white construction worker in Caroline County, Virginia, falls in love with a local black woman and family friend, Mildred Jeter. Upon Mildred discovering that she is pregnant, they decide to marry, but knowing that interracial marriage violates Virginia’s anti-miscegenation laws, they drive to Washington, D.C. to get married in 1958. Richard makes plans to build a house for Mildred just a few blocks from her family home. From acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols, Loving celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving (portrayed by Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), who married and then spent the next nine years fighting for the right to live as a family in their hometown. Their civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia, went all the way to the Supreme Court, which in 1967 reaffirmed the very foundation of the right to marry – and their love story has become an inspiration to couples ever since.
