[5.50/10] If Beale Street Could Talk (2018)

If Beale Street Could Talk (2018)

Quick Review: As authentic in its visual presentation as it's forced in feel, "If Beale Street Could Talk" is a beautifully-shot adaptation featuring an award-worthy performance from Regina King, but the all-too-ordinary romance lacks the emotional weight of Jenkins' previous effort, being a painfully sluggish, uneventful, and empty depiction of a troubled love story that is neither affecting, nor sensual, nor captivating enough to work on dramatic level.

Just visit Beale Street instead. It's a really cool area of Memphis!
