Barry Jenkins’ first film since Moonlight is his adaptation of James Baldwin’s eponymous novel. Carrying Baldwin’s words in its backbone “Every black person born in America was born on Beale Street (...) Beale Street is our legacy,” this romantic drama follows Tish and 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. Set in early-1970s Harlem, If Beale Street Could Talk is a timeless and moving love story of both a couple’s unbreakable bond and an African-American family.
