If you caught any of the Golden Globes buzz last week then you’ll know that the critically acclaimed movie, Moonlight, won Best Motion Picture Drama and is expected to do well at the Oscars.  This highly anticipated masterpiece isn’t released in Australia until the 26th January but as special Sydney Social 101 readers, you don’t have to wait because we have 5 double passes to an upcoming preview screening, this Thursday 19th January!

The film by visionary director Barry Jenkins showcases a timeless story of human connection and self-discovery. Moonlight chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighbourhood of Miami.

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 ground-breaking piece of cinema that reverberates with deep compassion and universal truths. Anchored by extraordinary performances from a tremendous ensemble cast, 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.
