'Moonlight' Is Finally Coming to Netflix!
We'll soon be able to stream the groundbreaking, Oscar-winning film whenever we want!
After making waves during the 2016-2017 awards season, Barry Jenkins' Oscar-winning film Moonlight is finally going to be made available on Netflix!
\u201cIt brings me great pleasure to announce that @BarryJenkins's Academy Award-winning film "Moonlight" will be having its @netflix US debut on May 21.\u201d— Strong Black Lead (@Strong Black Lead) 1555952511
"It brings me great pleasure to announce that @BarryJenkins's Academy Award-winning film "Moonlight" will be having its @netflix US debut on May 21," Netflix's Strong Black Lead said in an annoucement on Twitter earlier today.
It may have only been initially released just three years ago, but Moonlight (whose super-talented cast included names like two-time Oscar winner Mahershala Ali, Naomie Harris, Ashton Sanders, Trevante Rhodes, and Janelle Monáe) is still one of the most impactful, groundbreaking queer movies ever. The A24 film explores topics like sexuality, masculinity, and growing up in poverty through the coming-of-age story of a young, Black man living in Miami named Chiron. Intersectional narratives centering queer men of color are still very few and far between, especially in the mainstream, so for Moonlight to be available on such a huge platform like Netflix is a big deal!
We can't wait to watch it over and over and over again!
Moonlight is heading to Netflix on May 21.
