"They're saying this is for Adam Driver what Kramer vs Kramer was for Dustin Hoffman.More about him than about her.  Scarlett,to me,is the open question.By now it's Driver vs Phoenix for best actor."- Melchiades -Andrew

Moonlight Gets a Release Date

Yesterday Mahershala Aligot invited to be an Academy memberand now he has a movie that might get him nominated next year.Barry Jenkins'Moonlight,based on the playIn Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue(what a great title,why change it?)  by Tarrell Alvin McCraney,is scheduled to open limited on Oct.21.The movie tells the story of a young man who comes of age in 1980s Miami,focusing on on his quarter-life crisis,challenging environment and awakening sexuality.

The ensemble cast includes many fantastic actors we've all loved and wished they'd get the movie showcase that their talents calls for.In addition to Ali we get Naomie Harris and Andre Holland.Playing the lead character,at different times of his life,are newcomers Trevante Rhodes and Ashton Sanders.The movie not only has good buzz (word is that Harris in particular is a revelation) but also excellent pedigree.One of the producers is Brad Pitt.The director Barry Jenkins was named by NYTimes as one of20 Directors to Watch,a couple of years ago.His first film was the little seen buthugely admiredMedicine for Melancholy(2008),a grittier less romantic but no less absorbingBefore Sunset.

Not a lot is known about the film - there are even no pictures released.We have to make do with those three very attractive faces at different awards ceremonies in lieu of that.But it's definitely one to keep an eye on and get excited about in these slow summer days of great weather and bad blockbusters.

Are you ready for fall movies?(20th Century Womenwas also announced for 4th quarter).
