‘If Beale Street Could Talk’ Trailer Previews Barry Jenkins’ Harlem-Set Love Story

Written by on September 20, 2018 


Following the first teaser tied to James Baldwin’s birthday and this new trailer for If Beale Street Could Talk, Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight follow-up premiered to a rapturous response at TIFF. Now ahead of a U.S. premiere at New York Film Festival–the first time they will present a film at the Apollo Theater–Annapurna’s new trailer dives deeper into the story of a woman in Harlem, who is preparing for the birth of her child while her fiancée is in jail for a crime he didn’t commit.

Christopher Schobert said in his TIFF review, Like Moonlight, it is visually splendiferous with colors so vivid as to recall the heyday of Wong Kar-wai, but this technical mastery is not confined to the look. The music mixes classic jazz with a central theme from composer Nicholas Britell that is achingly beautiful. As with Moonlight, its cast is a sturdy mix of young talent and character actors, all ideally cast, all worthy of an entire film of their own. And, in its own way, Beale Street is just as thematically bold and ambitiously constructed as Jenkins’s last effort.”

Starring Kiki Layne, Stephan James, Teyonah Parris, Regina King, and Colman Domingo, see the new trailer below.


If Beale Street Could Talk opens on November 30.
