'Moonlight takes the pain of growing up and turns it into hardened scars and private caresses. This film is, without a doubt, the reason we go to the movies: to understand, to come closer, to ache -- hopefully with another.' - Timeout
'Exhilaration and melancholy are dispensed in equal doses by Moonlight, destined to be one of the better-reviewed films of this year, and for good reason: It's a masterpiece -- an overused word, but not the wrong one.' - Wall Street Journal
