Barry Jenkins’ follow-up to his magnificent, ground-breaking, Oscar Best Picture-winning Moonlight is this exquisite romantic drama based on James Baldwin’s novel of the same name. Tish (KiKi Layne) and Fonny (Stephan James) are lovers in ‘70s Manhattan when Fonny is falsely accused of a crime. As he awaits trial, Tish tries desperately to get him released while her mother (Golden Globe winner Regina King) must decide how far she will go to secure her daughter’s future. It’s a searing, lyrical, courageous film that contains and offers multitudes, celebrating love as well as documenting pain and elucidating the emotional costs of blackness in America.
“With his follow-up to best picture winner Moonlight, the writer-director brings James Baldwin’s 1974 novel to the screen with heartbreaking, visually audacious results” The Guardian
