At a Q&A for his new film “If Beale Street Could Talk” at the Toronto International Film Festival, Jenkins was asked if there was a moment where the social importance of the James Baldwin novel he was adapting hit him personally.

But Moonlight, Jenkins and his cast noted at the movie’s recent Los Angeles press day (watch above), should stand on its own merits, even if it faces some of the oversimplified labels as the so-called “gay cowboy” movie Brokeback Mountain 11 years ago.
