Director Barry Jenkins and playwright Tarell McCraney grew up in the same neighborhood in 1980s-era Miami. MOONLIGHT, based on an autobiographical story by McCraney, brought Jenkins back to his roots. And that return to his home turf has paid off: MOONLIGHT has been the toast of the festival circuit all this fall. This week, Adam's interview with Jenkins and actress Naomie Harris. Plus, quick reviews of two more new releases - Marvel's DOCTOR STRANGE and TOWER, a newly minted Golden Brick nominee that Adam calls one of the best films of the year.
