A HAUNTING TALE OF LOVE, FRIENDSHIP, AND SYSTEMIC INJUSTICE.

Director Barry Jenkins follows up Academy Award-winning MOONLIGHT with a beautiful adaptation of James Baldwin’s classic novel IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK. Lyrical and devastating, Jenkins brings out achingly heartfelt performances from Stephan James (SELMA), Regina King (BOYZ N THE HOOD), and newcomer KiKi Layne.

Set in early-1970s Harlem, this timeless and moving love story centers on young African-American couple 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. Tish finds herself pregnant soon after, both their lives become intensely uncertain. As Tish and her family fight to exonerate Fonny and make a life for their incoming child, it becomes clearer and clearer that the odds are stacked against them — and maybe the best they can do is love each other.

Accompanied by a lush jazz score that finds the haunting beauty amidst the oppression and grime of ‘70s New York, IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK is a comprehensive and emotional exploration of what it meant to be black in the 1970s — and what it means today.
