First Trailer for Barry Jenkins' Baldwin Film 'If Beale Street Could Talk'

If Beale Street Could Talk

“The things that tormented me the most were the very things that connected me to all the people who were alive.” To celebrate James Baldwin’s birthday today, Annapurna Pictures has released the first teaser trailer for If Beale Street Could Talk, the latest film from very talented filmmaker Barry Jenkins (director of Moonlight and Medicine for Melancholy). Based on James Baldwin’s 1974 novel of the same name, If Beale Street Could Talk is about a woman in Harlem desperately trying to prove her fiancé innocent of a crime while she is carrying their first child. Kiki Layne stars, along with Stephan James, and the full ensemble cast includes Teyonah Parris, Regina King, Colman Domingo, Brian Tyree Henry, Dave Franco, Ed Skrein, Michael Beach, Finn Wittrock, Aunjanue Ellis, Diego Luna, Pedro Pascal, and Emily Rios. Oh my goodness, this looks fantastic. Jenkins is back with something just as powerful and I can’t wait. ›››
