Annapurna Pictures presents IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK, in NY and LA on Friday, December 14 and additional cities on Christmas Day (get tickets now)!
Listening to Britell’s score for Barry Jenkins’s film adaptation of “If Beale Street Could Talk,” I get lost in the souls of the protagonists Tish and Fonny, two New Yorkers felled by strong love. In Jenkins’s film, “Eros” plays as Tish and Fonny lay down their perfect bodies on a perfect surface and make perfect love, as the unperfect world outside makes designs on their futures. – Doreen St. Felix, The New Yorker
