It's the sort of cinema that feels steeped in the past, completely of the moment and timeless all at once.
— Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
If Beale Street Could Talk
In the early 1970s, Harlem daughter and wife-to-be Tish (KiKi Layne) vividly recalls the passion, respect, and trust that have connected her and her artist fiancé Alonzo Hunt (Stephan James), who goes by the nickname 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.
Based on the novel by James Baldwin; from the director of Moonlight, Barry Jenkins.
