Must-See or Skippable? Ranking The 2019 Oscar Movies
MUST-SEE: If Beale Street Could Talk
If Beale Street Could Talk is beautiful, contemplative filmmaking. It’s the story of two young black people in the 1970s who try to build a life together. The film is also about the injustice this young couple faces, and the way it warps and shapes their lives.
The film is a wonder to behold. It can be a little slow at times, but it’s well worth some patience. Regina King may win an Oscar for her supporting turn, and it will be one she’s earned. The only shame about Beale Street is that it isn’t nominated for more awards at this year’s ceremony.
