Barry Jenkins’s follow-up to ‘Moonlight’ is the first English-language adaptation of a James Baldwin novel, telling the tale of a young black woman trying to clear the name of her partner who has been falsely accused of rape.

“Beale Street” operates on multiple levels in nearly every scene. It is both a character study and a cry for social justice; a lushly poetic piece of work and one razor-sharp in its attention to detail; a love story and a tragedy. It is the kind of film that can be appreciated purely for what’s on screen or analyzed frame by frame and theme by theme ... In other words, it’s a rare, brilliant accomplishment
— Roger Egbert
