Queen and Slim

Dir. Melina Matsoukas
2019 | 120 mins | Canada, UK
Oscar nominated British actor Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out) and Jodie Turner-Smith (The Neon Demon) star as a couple on their first date who become fugitives after an altercation with the police.
As the film unfolds, the couple unwittingly become a symbol of trauma, terror, grief and pain for African Americans across the country. Within a narrative thats clearly reminiscent of Bonnie and Clyde, Matsoukas tackles the pain of systemic racism and continued police brutality towards African Americans in the States, whilst also telling a beautiful, powerful and thoroughly modern black love story.
Directed by two-time Grammy winner Melina Matsoukas, director of HBOs Insecure, Netflix series Master of None and Beyoncés Formation video Queen & Slim is her hotly anticipated feature film directorial debut.
