If Beale Street Could Talk

If Beale Street Could Talk in Toronto there were as many expectations as doubts about the premiere of If Beale Street Could Talk,If Beale Street Could Talk Barry Jenkins’ first film after winning the Oscar with Moonlight and unintentionally starring in the most embarrassing mistake in the history of the Academy Awards. The fault was the rumors of negative screening tests (in Hollywood there is the betrayal of doing previews with average viewers to see how a movie is going to work and what its strengths and weaknesses are) and the unexpected decision not to release its new his debut was at the Telluride Film Festival, a competition in which the filmmaker had been a programmer for years before teaching homosexual drama there for the first time with enormous success. But Jenkins has not disappointed and the film adaptation of one of James Baldwin’s most celebrated texts, the subject in 2016 of the Oscar-nominated documentary I Am Not Your Negro and one of the authors who have most and best portrayed the African-American experience, is It has become one of the greatest phenomena experienced so far in the Canadian event.

The premise of If Beale Street Could Talk is very simple: the lives of two newlyweds in Harlem in the 70s are put to the test when he is wrongly accused of raping a girl. Her family closes ranks and does everything possible so that the couple can reunite before the birth of their first child. Jenkins moves through time and space to tell a simple yet captivating love story. The viewer witnesses the sentimental evolution of Fonny and Trish (charming Stephan James and KiKi Layne, this one in her first film performance) while discovering small vignettes of the lives of their families, indirectly shaping a portrait of life of the African-American community and of the social, legal and bureaucratic injustices that they continued to suffer even after the civil movements of the sixties. The entire cast row in favor of the work, but it is Regina King (a television reference from the last five years thanks to American Crime, The Leftovers or Seven Seconds) who emerges as a firm candidate to represent the film in the interpretive categories of the Oscars. That loyal mother, able to scold you in a moment and smash her face for you right after, is one of the Academy’s favorite archetypes and the actress’s work breathes empathy and love in each of her appearances.
