“Though he’d never written a screenplay, Mr. McCraney knew this story was meant to be a movie. He named it “In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue,” and then it sat for nearly 10 years, until a mutual friend from the Miami drama scene emailed the script to Mr. Jenkins. The friend couldn’t believe the paths of the men had not yet crossed.”
Moonlight, Limited Release. TARELL McCRANEY (BFA, Acting, ’03) wrote the play upon which the movie is based.
