Director Barry Jenkins’ Oscar-winning coming-of-age story is told in three chapters, with a trio of actors (Alex R. Hibbert, Ashton Sanders and Trevante Rhodes) playing central character Chiron, a boy from Miami’s crime-ridden Liberty City neighborhood who survives a gauntlet of bullying with the support of some unexpected allies. Costarring Mahershala Ali, Janelle Monáe and Naomie Harris. Edited by Joi McMillon with Nat Sanders. “Its story may be sprinkled with drug dealers and addicts. But its message is clear: The world is richer and deeper and more complex than we ever imagined, and even its most troubled characters - just like us - are looking for love.” - Stephen Galloway, The Hollywood Reporter.
