If Beale Street Could Talk Trailer

"These are our children… and we gotta set them free." Annapurna Pictures has released one final trailer for If Beale Street Could Talk, the latest exquisite film made by very talented filmmaker Barry Jenkins (of Moonlight and Medicine for Melancholy). Opening in theaters in December. 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 fiancĂ© innocent of a crime while she is carrying their first child. Kiki Layne stars as Tish, along with Stephan James as her fiancĂ© "Fonny", and the exceptional 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. Hands down one of the best films about love and romance this year, I highly recommend seeing this as soon as it's playing near you.

Here's the third & final trailer (+ poster) for Barry Jenkins' If Beale Street Could Talk, from YouTube:

Am I missing something? Not understanding all the hype...looks like a typical love-story-with-complications movie.

You're probably right. But, it looks like that might be a good thing these days if done right ...

The previous trailer was one of the best of the year so I'm skipping this one. Can't wait to see the movie though!

Looks like it will at least be a little happier than MOONLIGHT.
