Wednesday 26th July 2017 - 7:30 pm

Dir: Barry Jenkins, 2016, USA, 111 mins.
With Mahershala Ali, Naomie Harris, Janelle Monae, Trevante Rhodes.

Most critics had already awarded this film 5 stars before it went on to win the Oscar for best picture.  The story of Chiron is told in three stages through his childhood, adolescence and manhood.  As a black American he will meet prejudice but as a gay man the pressures are overwhelming.  It’s beautifully told with sensitivity and insight and makes full use of a luscious musical score.
