Tish is in love with Fonny, the father of her unborn child. When Fonny is falsely accused of rape and imprisoned, Tish and their families race to clear his name before the baby is born.
A mesmerising narrative that is both a timeless love story and a tale of social oppression and prejudice, If Beale Street Could Talk is based on James Baldwin’s 1974 novel of the same name. The stunning attention to detail in recreating 1970’s Harlem won the feature an award for ‘Best Time Capsule’.
