Awards Season Favorite 'If Beale Street Could Talk' Debuts Final Trailer & Poster

If Beale Street Could Talk is Moonlight filmmaker Barry Jenkins‘ new movie and it is getting a ton of buzz this awards season!

The final poster and trailer for the new drama, an adaptation of James Baldwin‘s acclaimed novel, have been released online.

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 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.

Also starring in the movie are Regina King, Colman Domingo, Teyonah Parris, Brian Tyree Henry, Michael Beach, Ed Skrein, Diego Luna, Dave Franco, and Pedro Pascal.

If Beale Street Could Talk hits theaters on December 14.
