Q. I’m a 64-year-old woman who is lactose intolerant. Do you think this will put me at risk for osteoporosis?

“Moonlight” is an extraordinary slice-of-life film, representing in the best sense what cinema is all about: to take us to places where we may not typically go in our life or imagination.
The film’s unusual cinematography elevates the material to a dream-like state, which contrasts with remarkably realistic performances and a spare soundtrack that makes the film even more captivating.
“Moonlight” is based on a semi-autobiographical play, “In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue,” by Tarell Alvin McCraney, with the screenplay written by the film’s director Barry Jenkins.
