Our Next Screening: If Beale Street Could Talk (26 June)

Our next screening is If Beale Street Could Talk and I’m really excited about this one because not only is it the latest film from Barry Jenkins, the director of Moonlight, but it’s an adaptation of a novel by James Baldwin, a man who’s elegance and razor sharp intellect burn absolutely dazzle.

The plot is focused on a black woman in Harlem who embraces her pregnancy while she and her family struggle to prove her fiancé innocent of a crime. It’s a film of it’s time and ours that is both righteous and romantic.

Here’s the trailer…

The film is rated 15. Tickets cost £7 and can be booked here.

 

Our Next Screening: Wild Rose (5 June)
