Queen & Slim

Play Trailer

A bad first date turns fatefully worse when a mismatched couple have an altercation with a policeman, which forces them on the run across a racially divided America. In Melina Matsoukas's electrifying, stylish and urgent directorial debut, newcomer Jodie Turner-Smith and Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out) are endlessly watchable playing the unlikely couple whose bond intensifies as the stakes increase. Queen & Slim grabs you by the collar and doesn't let go, from the film's gripping start to its epic ending.
