How do you follow-up an Oscar-winning breakthrough like Moonlight? That’s the question on our lips this week as Michael Leader, David Jenkins and Kelli Weston weigh up Barry Jenkins’ hotly-anticipated third feature If Beale Street Could Talk, adapted from James Baldwin’s celebrated novel. This week also sees the release of Australian actor-turned-director Joel Edgerton’s Boy Erased, based on a true account of a young man’s experience at a gay conversion therapy centre. And in Film Club, we explore one of Jenkins’ key inspirations for Beale Street, 1959’s Black Orpheus by French master Marcel Camus.
