We’re handicapping the odds on the nine Best Picture contenders for the Feb. 26 Academy Awards. Today: Moonlight.
Quick pitch: Sexual awakening and life reckonings mark the passage from boyhood to adulthood for a closeted gay Miami man, played at different ages by Alex Hibbert, Ashton Sanders and Trevante Rhodes.
Starring: Mahershala Ali, Trevante Rhodes, Janelle Monáe, André Holland, Alex Hibbert and Ashton Sanders.
Directed by: Barry Jenkins
Key early kudos: Golden Globes Best Picture — Drama; SAG Best Supporting Actor (Ali).
Box office (domestic, U.S. dollars): $21.3 million.
Ladbrokes odds: 7/1
Paddy Power: 13/2
Sky Bet: 8/1
Why it could win: It’s a compassionate and wise coming-of-age story that speaks to the urgent need to dig below the surface to find truth.
Why it might not: The La La Land juggernaut might prove too big for a movie this intimate to overcome.
Howell’s line:Moonlight’s glow will endure, with or without Oscar’s gold.
