Movie Review: IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK by Terry Hunter

The new movie called IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK is from director Barry Jenkins, whose last film, MOONLIGHT, won the Academy Award for Best Picture. The film is based on a 1974 novel by James Baldwin. It’s both a love story and a tale of a terrible injustice done to a young couple simply because the man is black. The story is dramatic; the actors are excellent; and the cinematography is artful, but the slow pace of the film kept it from really getting to my emotions.
