Moonlight, this year’s highly acclaimed Best Picture Oscar winner, will stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video under extension of the pact with studio A24.
The multiyear deal, extension of the 2013 pact between the two companies, will continue to make Amazon Prime Video the only premium subscription service for all upcoming A24 films. However, the content agreement covers only the U.S. — so Prime Video members elsewhere won’t have access to the movies as part of their subscription.
Moonlight, starring Mahershala Ali (“House of Cards”) and directed by Barry Jenkins, will be available on Prime Video starting May 21 to U.S. members.
Ali won the Oscar for best supporting actor for the film, and Jenkins and Tarell Alvin McCraney earned best adapted screenplay.
The three-part coming-of-age drama, set in Miami, also stars Naomie Harris, Janelle Monae, Trevante Rhodes, Ashton Sanders and Alex R. Hibbert.
