Moonlight, the Oscar-winning film by director Barry Jenkins, is heavy with psychological themes. In my Psych Cinema video, my psychological breakdown of the film and the character of Little/Chiron/Black includes:
- Identity formation and developing a sense of self
- Attachment styles
- Defense mechanisms
Also be sure to check out our profile of Tarell Alvin McCraney, whose own life is the inspiration for Moonlight.
