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.

A beautiful love story with an upsetting ending. But sadly that ending is reality for a lot of minority families. Well shot movie. Brings out so many emotions.

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.
