New York Times:
The coming-of-age drama “Moonlight” received Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay. It tells the story of a gay African-American boy growing up in the impoverished Liberty City neighborhood of Miami.

• Here’s The New York Times review, in which A. O. Scott asked if it was the best film of the year. (His answer was yes.)
