'Moonlight' in the Donald Trump Era

Barry Jenkins's Moonlight has already captured the hearts of cinema fans everywhere, including our own. But its story of a young gay black man growing up in Miami took on a whole new meaning with the news that Donald Trump will be the 45th President of the United States.

On the latest episode of the In Reel Deep Podcast, we delve deep into the power of Moonlight and its near-perfect structure, cinematography, and direction; we also wonder what movies will be like under a Trump administration, and the need for more stories like these going forward.
