If Beale Street Could Talk
Originally based on a novel by James Baldwin, If Beale Street Could Talk, is a moving story about a black couple in the 1970s navigating love, while trying to break free of wrongful accusation and racial oppression. The plot is mesmerizing, and the acting incredible.
A Star Is Born
Starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, the remake of A Star Is Born deserves all its praise. The music is absolutely fantastic, especially the song, “Shallow.” A love story between two struggling musicians, the movie is heart-wrenching and exemplifies countless themes about human nature and fame.
“Life isn’t black and white”. The movie based on true events starring Mahershala Ali, as a black pianist on tour, and Viggo Mortensen, Ali’s driver and bodyguard, reminds us of this message, as a unique bond joins the two men through their discoveries of personal relationships and discrimination.
A perfect period piece about deteriorating Queen Anne and her advisor running the country during a war with France. When a new servant joins the ranks, Queen Anne’s advisor has a new relationship to manage. The acting, costumes, and set design warranted the countless awards that The Favourite has won and been nominated for.
Tying with The Favourite for the most-nominated films ever (10) at the Academy Awards, Roma is an incredibly emotional and inspiring movie. Centering on a Mexican family in 1970s Mexico, the movie navigates the relationships between husband and wife, as well as caretakers/domestic workers and family.
