KEIGHLEY Film Club is to screen a movie showered with Oscar, Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards and nominations.

Moonlight will be shown at the Picture House cinema in North Street, Keighley, on Sunday and is open to everyone.

Film club spokesman, Alan Watkinson, said the movie’s awards success came after the absence of black film awards in 2015 and subsequent criticism by the black community.

He added: “Director Barry Jenkins adapted a play by Taroll Alvin McCravey to present a film that transforms rage and frustration into unadulterated intimacy.

“It is a portrait of a suffocating African American world in which a gay man’s coming of age story eventually provides an answer to who he is. It is a drama film of violence, sex and drugs and is a commitment to gay desire.

“This timeless three-part story (childhood, teenage and early adulthood) is of the human connection and self-discovery for Chiron as he struggles to survive in a rough Miami neighbourhood.

“As a child, he suffers neglect from a crack-addicted mother and seeks consolation in a substitute drug-dealing father figure. As a teenager he experiences sexual encounters and homophobic bullying at school, and lashes out at a gang leader, which ends with the involvement of the police and him being sentenced.

“Critics describe the film as a kaleidoscopic gem and say the film skilfully filters rhetoric through the realism of tactile eroticism of adolescence with its rich and sensuous, heartbreaking yet uplifting approach.

“Jenkins presents a fluid portrait of a soul in flux and paints the film’s scenes as a talisman of ever-changing textures and colours.”

Moonlight can be seen at 6pm. Doors open at 5.35pm.
