If Beale Street Could Talk Trailer

"These are our children, and we gotta set them free." Annapurna Pictures has debuted the new full-length official trailer for If Beale Street Could Talk, the latest exquisite film made by very talented filmmaker Barry Jenkins (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 as Tish, along with Stephan James as her fiancé "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. I saw this film at TIFF and it's pure bliss - I wrote: "it's a gorgeous film, visually and emotionally, and I didn't want it to end." A must see.

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

I really don't see what you describe here. It looks genuinely heartfelt and emotional and it does indeed look amazing.

From what I saw in the trailer, it was the acting and direction. I liked the sweeping movements and the emotion displayed seemed genuine. I know it's dramatic, but...it IS a drama! I felt it was cinematic and intriguing. Sometimes less is more for me. Also, I tend to gravitate to the "hopeless romantic" side of things. Maybe you're more about subversive and subtle film making when it comes to drama? lol You also seem a bit of a cynical when it comes to lovey dovey stuff too, right? Did you read the book Bo?

Well I'm glad my observations were on point! lol I've not seen Moonlight either. I've heard good things, but I've got other films I'd rather see prior to that. When I see this (and if it meets my expectations) I'll try and convince you to see it lol. Take 'er easy Bo!

What a beautiful trailer. Absolutely love the music. I hope it's from the score. Nicholas Britell's Moonlight score was amazing!
