IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK Awards Season Sneak Peek

We are so excited to continue our 2nd year of AWARDS SEASON SNEAK PEEKS at The Ritz with a special advance screening of one of the best films of the year IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK on Wed 6th Feb!

Set in early-1970s Harlem, If Beale Street Could Talk is a timeless and moving love story of both a couple's unbreakable bond and the African-American family's empowering embrace, as told through the eyes of 19-year-old Tish Rivers (screen newcomer KiKi Layne). A daughter and wife-to-be, Tish vividly recalls the passion, respect and trust that have connected her and her artist fiancé Alonzo Hunt. Friends since childhood, the devoted couple dream of a future together but their plans are derailed when Fonny is arrested for a crime he did not commit. Through the unique intimacy and power of cinema, If Beale Street Could Talk honours the author's prescient words and imagery, charting the emotional currents navigated in an unforgiving and racially biased world as the filmmaker poetically crosses time frames to show how love and humanity endure.

Overture, curtain, lights. This is it, the night of nights! Stay tuned for more AWARDS SEASON SNEAK PEEK announcements soon!
