Queen & Slim

Crime Drama Romance


 

A young African American couple's first date takes a shocking turn after a police officer pulls them over.

"Queen & Slim" is a romantic thriller set against the politically charged background of racially divided modern America. It's a vibrant and timely commentary from a debutant director with an important message to tell. Central to the narrative are exquisite performances from the leading couple; their incredible chemistry is palpable as we ride every bump and emotion of their powerful and affecting road trip. It's a film that oozes style, as musically splendid as it is visually, with a resonate hip-hop soundtrack and long, introspective shots helping to frame its poetically tragic story. Heavy is the head the wears the crown.
