IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK is a lush and lyrical ode to romance that soars amidst the dark clouds of an unjust America. It's a film that springs to life from Barry Jenkins' symphonic mastery of emotion and inequality - adapted with affection and insight from the poetic words of James Baldwin. Stand-out performances by KiKi Layne and Stephan James transcend the film's time period and demand attention be paid today, with Regina King's fiercely sympathetic embodiment of family and community reminding audiences "to trust love all the way."
