Medicine for Melancholy

Directed by Barry Jenkins

Romantic Drama, Slice of Life - Rated NR - 90 Minutes - 2007

Nearly 10 years before Moonlight, director Barry Jenkins' first feature is a look at 24 hours of interaction between two young African Americans in San Francisco who hooked up at a party, and then tentatively spend the next day together. Micah (Wyatt Cenac) is socially-minded and keenly aware of class struggles, while Joanne (Tracey Heggins) is less inclined to view things through a racial lens.
