A question is posed to the main character of Barry Jenkins’s wondrous, superbly acted new film, Moonlight: “Who is you, man?” The beauty of Jenkins’s second feature, which follows his San Francisco–set black-boho romance Medicine for Melancholy (2008), radiates from the way that query is explored and answered: with specifics and expansiveness, not with foregone conclusions. It is asked by a black man of another black man — those to whom so much poisonous meaning and deranged mythology have long been ascribed, those too often not deemed worthy to be given a chance to respond to this most fundamental of inquiries.
