If Beale Street Could Talk (15)
Cast. KiKi Layne, Stephan James, Regina King.
With his follow-up to the Oscar-winning Moonlight, Barry Jenkins brings James Baldwin’s 1974 novel to the screen with heart-breaking, visually audacious results. This is the story of Tish, a newly engaged Harlem woman who races against the clock to prove her lover’s innocence while carrying their first-born child to term. It is a celebration of love told through the story of a young couple, their families and their lives, trying to bring about justice through love, for love and the promise of the American dream. Tish and Fonny's story ultimately insists that even a world of corruption, prejudice and unfairness, love and dignity might - just might - prevail.
