Ahead of the Dec. 14th release of If Beale Street Could Talk, Annapurna Pictures has released the final movie poster and trailer for the essential film based on James Baldwin’s novel of the same title.
The film was directed by Barry Jenkins, and stars Stephan James, KiKi Layne, Regina King, and Colman Domingo.
“Set in early-1970s Harlem, If Beale Street Could Talk is a timeless and moving love story of both a couple's unbreakable bond and the African-American family's empowering embrace, as told through the eyes of 19-year-old Tish Rivers (screen newcomer KiKi Layne). A 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 (Stephan James). 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.”
