(Barry Jenkins, 2018) · Barry Jenkins (director of Moonlight) brings James Baldwin's novel to the screen. In 1970s Harlem, longtime friends Tish and Fonny fall in love, but their future is jeopardized when Fonny is put in prison for a crime he did not commit. After learning that she is pregnant, Tish works to prove her fiancé's innocence before the birth of their child, while navigating the injustice of a deeply prejudiced society. Maintaining his colorful, poetic aesthetic, Jenkins paints a timeless portrait of black love.
