If Beale Street Could Talk
My Christmas Eve film this year was If Beale Street Could Talk. I had the opportunity to go to The Angelika Film Center in NYC to experience this lovely film. The story of Tish and Fonny is sweet and tender, yet fraught. The depiction of the 70s is nostalgic, especially in the costumes. Beautifully shot, sincerely performed, the words of Baldwin are done proud. This film deserves more than one viewing.
