If Beale Street Could Talk is the latest from Moonight 2016 director Barry Jenkins and the story of a Harlem based woman desperately scrambling to prove her fiancé innocent of a crime, while carrying their first child.

Based on the book of the same name by American novelist and social critic James Baldwin, If Beale Street Could Talk stars Stephan James, Regina King, KiKi Layne, Pedro Pascal, Ed Skrein… 

I didn’t fully understand the significance of the title of this movie until I read the synopsis. I doubt there could have been a more perfect title.

As for the story, it would be great for it to end well, but considering the period in American history that it’s set, the chances aren’t great. Nevertheless, how beautiful is it that this trailer was released on Baldwin’s birthday, August 2nd.

Dave Franco, Colman Domingo, Teyonah Parris and Aunjanue Ellis also star.
