A little while back, before Naomie Harris was nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category at the Oscars, we caught up with her in London to assure her that she was definitely going to get recognition for her amazing performance in Moonlight. The film finally arrives in UK cinemas on Friday, and we urge you to book tickets to go and see this groundbreaking film as soon as possible.
At once a vital portrait of contemporary African American life and an intensely personal and poetic meditation on identity, family, friendship, and love, Moonlight is a groundbreaking piece of cinema that reverberates with deep compassion and universal truths. Anchored by extraordinary performances from a tremendous ensemble cast, Barry Jenkins’s staggering, singular vision is profoundly moving in its portrayal of the moments, people, and unknowable forces that shape our lives and make us who we are.
You can watch our interview with Naomie below. Moonlight opens on Friday 17th February and you can read our full five-star review here.
