Brandon, Sharmane and Rashanii are back to review one of the best films of the year If Beale Street Could Talk.

"I Hope Nobody has ever had to look at anybody they love through glass" - James Baldwin. This film by Barry Jenkins (Best Picture; Moonlight) brings Balwin's fictional story to live in a very real way.

This story tackles racial injustice, sexual assault, the criminal justice system and black family love in a way that respects all aspects of those topics while not creating a black torture porn film that we often get (See Detroit). This film follow the love story of Tish (Kiki Layne) and Fonny (Stephen James) as they fight to get Fonny out of jail from being falsely accused of rape.
