Apple hires Oscar-winning studio to produce films for its video service

Movie of the week: buy “Moonlight – Under the Moonlight”, with Mahershala Ali, for R $ 9.90!

Every Thursday Apple chooses a Movie of the week at the iTunes Store, whose purchase (even in 4K / HDR, depending on the production) R $ 9.90. The title selected this time (and not the first) was "Moonlight – Under the Moonlight", with Mahershala Ali, Andre Holland and Naomie Harris.

Check out his trailer:

Here's what Apple says about the movie:

The 2017 Oscar winner for Best Picture is an intimate journey through the life of a young black homosexual on the outskirts of Miami. Director and screenwriter Barry Jenkins creates a powerful drama that captures its protagonist at three different times (childhood, adolescence and adulthood) and raises complex moral and social issues as rare as long. Highlight for the performance of Mahershala Ali, who won the award for Best Supporting Actor.

As usual, our reader Renato Alan Promenzio (@tripalavra), who is a cardholder, also sent us a personalized comment about the film:

Let us leave aside, for a few minutes, the fact that we are talking about the Oscar winner for Best Picture. Thus, I make space to highlight the two sides of this film, leaving it open for them to draw their own conclusions and to kindly share mine: 1) refers to a film that is somewhat stopped, detailed and that did not please much of the public, reaching so little box office success including on DVD / video services streaming; 2) highlights the sensitivity with which the script was conceived, the characters developed and the plot well tied. I consider it a very good film, not least because the really little-known cast was a part show. But, to win the Oscar, I think it was a bit over the top.
