Synopsis

Following his Best Picture Academy Award winner Moonlight, writer/director Barry Jenkins adapts James Baldwin’s acclaimed novel If Beale Street Could Talk.

A love story set in 1970s New York, If Beale Street Could Talk gives voice to a couple’s unbreakable bond and a family’s empowering embrace, as told through the eyes of 19-year-old Tish (KiKi Layne). Friends since childhood, Tish and Fonny (Stephan James) fall in love and are soon expecting their first child. But their plans for the future are derailed when Fonny is arrested for a crime he didn’t commit. Relying on familial and inner strength, Tish and Fonny must fortify themselves against a world intent on tearing them apart.

Breathing new life into Baldwin’s brilliant narrative of black America, Jenkins delivers a beautifully crafted feast for the eyes, ears and heart with this quietly powerful masterpiece. Newcomer KiKi Layne and Stephan James are captivating as the young lovers and their chemistry is palpable. They are supported by an outstanding ensemble cast, including Regina King, who won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress for her role.
