Here is a short review of "If Beale Street Could Talk" movie plot summary.
Note: The film's structure is non-linear, but this plot summary is written in a linear fashion.
Clementine "Tish" Rivers and Alonzo "Fonny" Hunt have been friends their whole lives, beginning a romantic relationship when older. In the 1970s, they struggle to find an apartment as most New York landlords won't rent to black people. Eventually, they find a place in a warehouse being converted to loft apartments; Levy (Dave Franco), the Jewish landlord, rents it to them at a good rate because he enjoys seeing couples who are in love, regardless of race.
That night, Tish (KiKi Layne) is harassed by a man while in a mostly white grocery store. He begins to assault her, so Fonny (Stephan James) physically throws him out of the store. A white policeman nearby, Officer Bell (Ed Skrein), attempts to arrest Fonny for it, but reluctantly lets him go when the Jewish woman who runs the grocery store vouches for them and chastises Bell for his racism.
Fonny is later arrested and accused of raping a woman named Victoria Rogers (Emily Rios). Although nearly impossible for him to have gone from the scene of the crime to the apartment where he was arrested in the time between the rape and the arrest, the case against Fonny is considered strong due to Officer Bell's testimony. The claim is he saw Fonny fleeing the scene, and Victoria identified Fonny in a lineup as her rapist. Tish, as well as Fonny's friend Daniel Carty (Brian Tyree Henry), were with him at the time of the rape, but it is considered an unreliable alibi due to Tish's romantic relationship with Fonny and Daniel's previous conviction for grand theft auto (although actually arrested for marijuana possession).
