Director: Barry Jenkins ● Starring: Mahershala Ali, Shariff Earp, Duan Sanderson, Naomie Harris.
A beautiful and sensitive film about growing up black and sexually confused on the urban streets of Miami.
Told in three parts, we see Chiron: as a child from a deprived background who is taken under the wing of the local drug dealer; then as a troubled and confused youth; and finally the adult who has to face the truth of his feelings.
Independent film-maker Jenkins has achieved one of the great breakthroughs of recent years with this impressive drama, which is nominated for eight Academy Awards.
With two showings at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.
