Writer/director Barry Jenkins follows up his Oscar winning Moonlight with If Beale Street Could Talk, an adaptation of the 1974 novel by James Baldwin.

In the 1970s set drama, Stephan James plays a young man jailed on a trumped up rape charge, while his pregnant girlfriend (KiKi Layne) and her parents (Regina King, Colman Domingo) attempt to clear his name.

If Beale Street Could Talk is in UK/ROI cinemas February 2019.

Check out the new trailer below.


The official synopsis reads:

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.
