If Beale Street Could Talk

4

“‘If Beale Street Could Talk’ is a moving, painful story. It is so vividly human and so obviously based upon reality, that it strikes us as timeless”, schreef Joyce Carol Oates voor The New York Times in 1974, toen de roman van James Baldwin (1924-1987) uitkwam. De boekrecensie had evengoed vandaag over Barry Jenkins’ ambitieuze filmadaptatie kunnen worden geschreven.
