Like so many young African American men, Fonny (aka Alonzo) has been arrested and jailed on a trumped-up charge. Tish is pregnant and promises he’ll be out and back in Harlem before their baby is born. Tish’s family may be supportive , but Fonny’s God-bothering mother responds with hostility and spite, blaming Tish for her son’s supposed fall from grace. James Baldwin’s novel is marvellously brought to the screen.
