Congratulations to Nicholas Britell on your second Academy Award, Best Score Nomination! – Beale Street picked up a total of three Academy Award Nominations including Best Adapted Screenplay, Barry Jenkins and Best Supporting Actress, Regina King! – – “Barry Jenkins’ If Beale Street Could Talk is certainly not what anyone would call a happy film, as its central subjects live as targets of racial prejudice and victims of an unjust system, but it what does beautifully balance out the melancholy is the uplifting love in the relationship between KiKi Layne’s Tish and Stephen James’ Fonny.- – The purity and intensity of their bond is what powers them through a harsh and unfair world, and it makes the movie something special. There are a number of examples of this throughout the film, but the one we will highlight is their post-coital chat, gorgeously highlighted by composer Nicholas Britell’s “Eros.” – – #ifbealestreetcouldtalk #jamesbaldwin #barryjenkins #nicholasbritell #soundtrack #soundtracks #reginaking #filmscore #filmcomposer #newyorkcity #academyawards #bestscore #annapurna #annapurnapictures #academyawards #cinema #indiefilm #academyawards2019 #stephanjames #kikilayne #moonlight #moonlightmovie #moonlightfilm #lakeshorerecords #moviesoundtrack #moviesoundtracks #lsrbo2018 #invadarecords
