Columbia Film Society: IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK
IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK (Metacritic Reviews & Trailer)
November 8 & 9, 2019
Making a follow-up to Barry Jenkins’s Moonlight was a virtually impossible task, and adapting James Baldwin for the big screen was arguably even more daunting. Yet Jenkins accomplished both with his film If Beale Street Could Talk—an intelligent, thoughtfully made love story that depicts society’s grave injustices without letting go of its protagonists’ fierce bond. In re-creating 1970s Harlem, Jenkins paints the frame with luxurious and surprising color, and captures the humor, verve, and considerable complexity of Baldwin’s prose. But none of it would come off without the work of Beale Street’s magnificent cast, including the Oscar award winning Regina King. (in English) (119 minutes).
