Part of the filming took place at St. Nicolas Avenue, which Barry Jenkins knows well for having lived in the corner on 145th Street for a long time. See more »
When Tish is waiting on a subway platform where the 1960s-style enamel column plates say that the station is 135th St (probably on the 8th Ave line rather than on the Lenox Ave line). However, the mosaic on the wall above the tracks features a capital 'B' -- suggesting that filming may have taken place in the now-closed-off part of the Bowery station on the Nassau St line.

Great visuals but slow boring dull story - trite and passe soap opera. 5 max
I really enjoyed Moonlight and was really looking forward to Jenkins new film especially with all the high reviews but it was truly disappointing. Sure the cinematography, acting and music is exceptionally well done yet the most vital part is the story which was so slow, dull and boring, almost an outdated trite 1970s film with nothing really refreshing except a story that easily could have been shot as a short film or tv episode but 2 plus hours just felt like a painful boring experience. And the ending is the worst part that leaves one without any finality or closure after all the family goes through and the lovers and it ends with him taking a plea and doing time. Almost makes one wonder what inspired Jenkins to make a film about this subject matter that is so dated or is it to show that not much has changed since the 1970s. Huh?
Hopefully his next film is more entertaining and a story that has some more depth to it. I give it a 5.
