If Beale Street Could Talk Featurette

Moonlight director Barry Jenkins is back behind the camera with If Beale Street Could Talk, the first major big screen adaptation of the work of author James Baldwin. It’s a surprising project for the director, mostly because James Baldwin’s estate, managed by sister Gloria Karefa-Smart, consistently says no to film adaptations of James Baldwin’s stories. A new If Beale Street Could Talk featurette explores why this story is so revered, and how Barry Jenkins has turned it into a film that will undoubtedly be a key player this awards season.

On top of being an uber-talented actor and the thinking girl’s heartthrob, Jake Gyllenhaal has now ascended to becoming this fall movie season’s behind-the-scenes hero.

Gyllenhaal made headlines earlier this summer for having a part in getting Jamie Lee Curtis to return as Laurie Strode for the Halloween reboot, which helped make it one of the most anticipated movies of the season. And now he’s revealed to have helped get Barry Jenkins‘ adaptation of If Beale Street Could Talk to the big screen — and it happened almost by accident.

Barry Jenkins Best Picture Speech

It usually feels like a miracle when an Oscar winner gives a short and sweet acceptance speech. Hell, long Oscar acceptance speeches have become such a staple that 2018 Academy Awards host Jimmy Kimmel even created a whole new category for shortest acceptance speech. (Congratulations Mark Bridges.)

But there was one speech that we wish we could have heard more of: Barry Jenkins Best Picture speech that the director would have given after Moonlight‘s astonishing win at the 2017 Oscars. But we all know what happened that year. A fumbled envelope, an award incorrectly given to La La Land, the celebrity reaction picture of the century. Unfortunately, that insane mistake would end up overshadowing Moonlight‘s very important win, and a speech that would have had us all weeping.
