Barry Jenkins’ follow-up to his magnificent, Oscar winning drama Moonlight is this exquisite romantic adaptation of James Baldwin’s novel of the same name.

Tish and Fonny, two young lovers in ‘70s Manhattan find their bond being tested when Fonny is accused of a crime he didn’t commit. Awaiting trial, lost in the criminal justice system, Tish and her family must decide how far they will go to get Fonny out and secure their future.

This deeply soulful film showcases Jenkins’ dazzling ability to fill the screen with pure romance, crafting magic from the smallest moments. Emotionally devastating and visually breath-taking, If Beale Street Could Talk is an unmissable story of joy, love and pain.
