The tender, heartbreaking story of a young man’s struggle to find himself, told across three defining chapters in his life as he experiences the ecstasy, pain, and beauty of falling in love, while grappling with his own sexuality.
Anchored by astonishing performances and the singular vision of filmmaker Barry Jenkins, Moonlight is a groundbreaking exploration of masculinity — a sensual, intoxicating piece of cinema that uncovers deep truths about the moments that define us, the people who shape us most, and the ache of love that can last a lifetime.
The movie soundtrack of Moonlight will be released on October 21, 2016 by Lakeshore Records.
Here’s the movie trailer:
There was a song in the movie before he arrives at the diner, it was a latin/spanish/cuban song or ballad with a man singing the lyrics “aye yi yi yi”. What song is it and by who is it performed? I don’t think it is Nicholas Britell or is it?
Also desperate to find that song! Doesn’t seem to be among the soundtrack list.
I spent ALL DAY tracking it down. I’d heard it sung by women before but not by a man. The song is Cucurrucucu Paloma by Caetano Veloso. You can buy it alone for 99 cents on amazon. The most beautiful rendition of that song EVER!
