Goofs

  • When Tish is waiting on a subway platform where the 1960s-style enamel column plates say that the station is 135th St (probably on the 8th Ave line rather than on the Lenox Ave line). However, the mosaic on the wall above the tracks features a capital 'B' -- suggesting that filming may have taken place in the now-closed-off part of the Bowery station on the Nassau St line.

I LOVED THIS FILM. The camera captures gorgeous moments through eye contact from the actors which is mesmerizing. This love story is so beautiful and painful, It breaks my heart and makes me feel so much inside. Bravo to all the fantastically beautiful actors & the phenomenal director. Definitely seeing it again.

Loved the use of natural lighting and color. Smart cinematography and excellent performances make this a must see if you are a fan of clever movements and actors that chew up the scene. A tense heart-filled story of a realistic relationship and the trails that can weigh that down and test a couple's bond. It can either break you or make you stronger. I believe this spoke to just about every person in the room in one way or another. I liked it a lot.

In the movies, love is cheap. It’s everywhere and nowhere, too often reduced to a formula or a reward. Beale Street knows better. It restores to love, romantic and familial, its sanctity—an ambition that makes it one of the most distinctive love stories in recent memory.

If the movie’s slow burn seems to build toward a powerful release that doesn’t materialize, the sheer beauty of its craft and the heartfelt feeling behind every scene nonetheless command attention.

If Beale Street isn’t quite as seamless as the Oscar-winning Moonlight, this adaptation of the James Baldwin novel still proves to be a stirring, absorbing experience that articulates something ineffable about everyday life.
