1970s Harlem comes to life as Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) brings James Baldwin's 1974 novel to the screen. 19-year old Tish Rivers desperately scrambles to prove her recently jailed fiancé innocent of a rape while carrying their first child. "Sublime in its depiction of an emotional connection and subtle in its layers of systematic oppression, Beale Street is a major work from a filmmaker whose gifts are clearly boundless."
