Barry Jenkins Visually Reimagines James Baldwin's If Beale Street Could Talk For a Full Display of Cinematic Blackness
Oscar-winning director Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) has tackled James Baldwin’s tragic, yet beautiful tale, If Beale Street Could Talk. This is the first time any of Baldwin’s work will be adapted into film in the English language. Jenkins’ goal was to keep the integrity of Baldwin’s genius but make sure the film didn’t feel like literature. The theme of the book is love, passion and the airing of dirty laundry in the black family dynamic.
