If Beale Street Could Talk (15) – 2019, USA, 119 mins
Director: Barry Jenkins
In early 1970s Harlem, daughter and wife-to-be Tish vividly recalls the passion, respect and trust that have connected her and her artist fiancé Alonzo Hunt, 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. As he awaits trial behind bars, Tish finds out she is pregnant and, with the help of those around her, works to try to get him released before the baby arrives.
“It’s a film with love at its root, both familial and romantic, and Jenkins fills so much of it with a radiating warmth.” – The Guardian
