IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK


If you were moonstruck by Moonlight, then this is the flick for you. If you’re not familiar with Barry Jenkins’ work but still enjoy intimate close-ups, more mood lighting than a cocktail bar and an emotional road-trip the length of Route 66, then you should still check this film out.


Fact Barry Jenkin's If Beale Street Could Talk is a film adaptation of a 1974 novel penned by author and civil rights activist, James Baldwin. Despite the decades-long gap between when the book was released and now, the story — which follows a young black couple from Harlem through a false accusation and untimely pregnancy — still rings true.


Sepia-soaked streets and sleek 70’s costumes star in this operatic snapshot of Harlem, based on the novel by acclaimed author James Baldwin. You will follow sweethearts Tish and Fonny, beset on all sides by bigotry, an unlawful arrest and an unplanned pregnancy, as they fight to be reunited with the odds of the universe stacked against them.


If Beale Street Could Talk promises to be a sweeping odyssey, its depiction of racial injustice as relevant as its motifs of true love and family love raising the middle finger in the face of hardship are timeless. In short, prepare to cry

Looking set to skewer three accolades at the Oscars (apparently Jenkins is physically incapable of making a bad movie) and fronted by a phenomenal gaggle of actors, you’d be a fool not to tune in to this heart-throbbing show- stopper. If Beale Street Could Talk is guaranteed to be a tear-jerker, funny- bone-beater and heartstring-yanker all rolled into one – go out and treat yourself to its cinematic goodness.
