I also talked to Oscar winner Barry Jenkins and actress KiKi Layne about their new film If Beale Street Could Talk. Both were in Georgia for the fabulous SCAD Savannah Film Festival.

Annapurna Pictures has released the official trailer and poster for the upcoming film adaptation of James Baldwin‘s classic If Beale Street Could Talk.

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).
