'The Knick' Star Andre Holland in Trailer for 'Moonlight'

This indie would have my attention simply for Holland being in it, since I loved him on Steven Soderbergh's The Knick, but the movie looks interesting as well. It's very rare to see stories in film about people of color struggling with their sexuality, which is why it's even more important that these movies get made. Director Barry Jenkins tackles the subject head on here, with a film based on the play In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue. The lead is played by Trevante Rhodes, but it also stars familiar faces Janelle Monae, Naomie Harris and House of Cards' Mahershala Ali in supporting parts. It's premiering at the Toronto Film Festival in September.
