A well-warranted standing ovation greeted writer/director Barry Jenkins after his newest film If Beale Street Could Talk, premiered last week at the Toronto International Film Festival (check out our review HERE). This week, amid the buzz and hype, the beautifully crafted follow-up gets a trailer that only heightens the anticipation for its upcoming release.
The film, set in 1970s Harlem, is told through the eyes of Tish Rivers, a 19-year-old to-be mother who is fighting to clear the name of her fiancé, Fonny. The trailer captures the intimacy that encompasses the film, utilizing a handful of powerful one-liners to set the tone and show that much like Moonlight, this film contains a wealth of emotion.
Backed by inspiring music, the trailer will give you the feels. We can expect more of those feels and emotions when If Beale Street Could Talk hits select theaters on November 30.
