Frank Ocean has written the foreword for A24 Films’ book on Moonlight. The Best Picture-winning movie’s literary equivalent arrives in 224 pages, and will also include an essay by writer and theater critic Hilton Als and acceptance speeches from the 2017 Oscars. The book will be released alongside Ex Machina and The Witch, with each piece featuring photos and screenplays of some of the company’s most popular movies.

Directed by Barry Jenkins and based on Tarell Alvin McCraney’s unpublished semi-autobiographical play In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue, the 2016 film stars Trevante Rhodes, André Holland, Janelle Monáe, Ashton Sanders, Jharrel Jerome, Naomie Harris and Mahershala Ali. Following the life of Chiron Harris in three phases — his youth, adolescence and early adult life — the flick looks at how he faces the difficulties regarding his sexuality and identity, along with the physical and emotional abuse he undergoes as he grows up.
