IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK
(2018, USA, 119 min)
Directed by Barry Jenkins
Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) adapts James Baldwin’s 1974 novel chronicling two star-crossed lovers in 1970s Harlem. Gorgeously photographed, meticulously structured, and deeply resonant, Jenkins lyrically demonstrates how little has changed in the Black American experience over the past 50 years. The film was awarded Best Feature and Best Director at the 2019 Independent Spirit Awards and Regina King won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.
