Get your tissues at the ready, because the trailer for Barry Jenkins’ If Beale Street Could Talk is extremely emotional. Watch above.
Emerging from Moonlight glory, Oscar-winning director Jenkins’ once again delves into heartbreaking family dynamics.

Regina King, Teyonah Parris, and Brian Tyree Henry also star. The film is an adaptation of James Baldwin’s novel of the same name and serves as the first time Baldwin’s work has been adapted into an English-language feature. Beale Street hails from Annapurna Pictures — the production studio that worked on the A24-distributed Spring Breakers, and Warner Bros.’ Her.
If Beale Street Could Talk arrives in theaters nationwide Fall 2018.
