'Moonlight' Director Barry Jenkins & Cast



I'm looking forward to seeing this film. It looks really interesting. Just a thought: I think that Oprah and the OWN channel has created a real market for black drama (for lack of a better term). This is a chance for some actors to really shine. It features Andre Holland; I really enjoyed him on The Knick. It also features British actress, Naomi Harris from Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. I really love that the actors are not one dimensional and stereotypical. There seems to be some diverse characters from what I've seen of the trailer. I guess that it remains to be seen.  I'm just glad that it's not a comedy. Black actors in Hollywood don't always have to make the audiences laugh. Sometimes, the audience needs to cry. In fact, we all need a really good cry after living through 2016.  Thank you, Mr. Jenkins.
