Moonlight director-writer Barry Jenkins — riding high, winner of several awards thus far, toast of the town, likely Oscar nominee — hosted a luncheon today at Craig’s. We chatted about Donald Trump, and how the coming Trump nightmare may inspire a spate of rich films (i.e., the old Orson Welles/Third Man theory about ghastly social environments being good for art while relatively happy, humanistic, well-nurtured societies, like Switzerland’s, tend to inspire mediocrity). Barry knows all about movies, and could be a critic if so inclined. Moonlight producers Adele Romanski, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner were there; ditto editors Nat Sanders and Joi McMillon. Incidentally: Craig’s was serving the juiciest, best-tasting sliders I’ve had in months if not years.
