Academy Award-winning writer/director Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) returns with his adaptation of James Baldwin’s novel. Set in early-1970s Harlem, If Beale Street Could Talk is a timeless and moving love story of a couple’s unbreakable bond and the African-American family’s empowering embrace, as told through the eyes of 19-year-old Tish (talented newcomer KiKi Layne). A daughter and wife-to-be, Tish vividly recalls the passion, respect and trust that have connected her and her artist fiancé Alonzo (Stephan James, Race, Selma), who goes by the nickname Fonny. Friends since childhood, the devoted couple dream of a future together but their plans are derailed when Fonny is arrested for a crime he did not commit. Even more anxious to clear Fonny’s name is Tish’s deeply compassionate mother Sharon (Regina King, Ray), readying to put herself on the line for her daughter and future son-in-law’s happiness…and for the couple’s unborn child, whose arrival will herald new joys and challenges. Through the unique intimacy and power of cinema, If Beale Street Could Talk honors the author’s prescient words and imagery, charting the emotional currents navigated in an unforgiving and racially biased world as the filmmaker poetically crosses time frames to show how love and humanity endure.
