Bye bye, January – dry by name, dry by nature. Aloha, February – the month of red chocolate hearts, flippable frying-pan-based feasts and a significantly faster-to-arrive payday. It's also the month all this great stuff arrives on the cultural scene – prep your calendars now.
Watch this: Moonlight
Thanks to award season, you’ve been inundated with stellar cinematic offerings so far this year, but if there’s one film you should make sure you see this month, it’s Moonlight (17 Feb). In this coming-of-age drama, writer and director Barry Jenkins depicts the joy, tragedy and complexity of black boyhood while exploring what it means to grow up as a gay African American today. Masterfully shot frames and an award-winning cast, including Naomie Harris (Skyfall), Mahershala Ali (House Of Cards) and new face Ashton Sanders, meanz this critically acclaimed cut is not to be missed.
