Queen & Slim

Cinema | (15) | 132 minutes |
10th March 2020 – 14th September 2020

Oscar nominated British actor Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out, Black Panther) 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 that’s clearly reminiscent of Bonnie and Clyde, director Melina Matsoukas tackles the pain of systemic racism and continued police brutality towards African Americans in the United States, whilst also telling a beautiful, powerful and thoroughly modern black love story.

Queen & Slim is the feature film directorial debut from two-time Grammy winner Melina Matsoukas, director of HBO’s Insecure, episodes of Aziz Ansari’s Netflix series Master of None and Beyoncé’s ‘Formation’ video; as well as the feature screenwriting debut of Lena Waithe, known for her superb writing and acting in Master of None (including winning an Emmy for co-writing the outstanding Thanksgiving episode) and her own original series The Chi. The film features standout cameo performances from comedian Dave Chappelle and The Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ bassist Flea.
