Barry Jenkins Presents 'If Beale Street Could Talk' at Rome Film Fest 2018!

Barry Jenkins keeps it cool and casual while walking the red carpet at the photo call and press conference for his latest film If Beale Street Could Talk held during the 2018 Rome Film Fest at Auditorium Parco Della Musica on Sunday (October 21) in Rome, Italy.

The 38-year-old Oscar-winning writer-director then switched into a suit to premiere the film at the festival.

This is Barry‘s first film since the Oscar-winning Moonlight.

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 (KiKi Layne). A daughter and wife-to-be, Tish vividly recalls the passion, respect and trust that have connected her and her artist fiancĂ© Alonzo Hunt, who goes by the nickname Fonny (Stephan James). 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 – Watch the trailer here!
