Last night, the Toronto Film Festival presented the WORLD PREMIERE of Plan B, Pastel and Annapurna Pictures’ IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK.

The cast of the film includes Kiki Layne, Stephan James, Teyonah Parris, Regina King, Colman Domingo, Brian Tyree Henry, Dave Franco, Ed Skrein, Michael Beach, Aunjanue Ellis and Finn Wittrock and Diego Luna.

Based on the novel by James Baldwin, If Beale Street Could Talk, is the story of Tish (Layne), a newly engaged Harlem woman who races against the clock to prove her lover’s (James) innocence while carrying their first-born child to term. It is a celebration of love told through the story of a young couple, their families and their lives, trying to bring about justice through love, for love and the promise of the American dream.

The movie marks Jenkins’ first production with Annapurna and a reunion of “Moonlight’s” producing team with PASTEL and Plan B.  “Moonlight” won the 2016 Best Picture Oscar and Best Adapted Screenplay, which Jenkins shared with co-writer Tarell Alvin McCraney.

Following the screening, Writer & director Barry Jenkins, and stars KiKi Layne, Stephan James, Colman Domingo, Brian Tyree Henry, and Regina King came on stage for a Q & A.
