The official trailer and first poster have been released for the upcoming big screen adaptation of If Beale Street Could Talk.

From Oscar-winner Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) and based on the critically-acclaimed novel from James Baldwin, If Beale Street Could Talk stars Stephan James (Selma, Race) as Fonny and newcomer Kiki Layne as Tish.

In early 1970’s Harlem, Tish, a nineteen-year old girl, is in love with a young sculptor, Fonny, the father of her unborn child. When Fonny is falsely accused of rape and imprisoned, Tish and their families race to clear his name before the baby is born. A story about love persisting in the face of racial oppression and injustice, Jenkins brings together a talented young cast which includes Stephan James (Selma, Race) as Fonny and newcomer Kiki Layne as Tish.

The film is written and directed by Barry Jenkins. It is produced by Megan Ellison, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Adele Romanski, Sara Murphy and Barry Jenkins.
