Queen & Slim

Melina Matsoukas

From two-time Grammy award winning director Melina Matsoukas, the visionary filmmaker behind this generation’s most powerful pop-culture experiences, including HBO’s Insecure, the Emmy award-winning “Thanksgiving” episode of Netflix’s Master of None, and Beyonce’s “Formation,” and from trailblazing, Emmy-winning writer Lena Waithe (Netflix’s Master of None), comes the unflinching new drama, Queen & Slim.

While on a forgettable first date together in Ohio, a black man (Get Out’s Daniel Kaluuya) and a black woman (Jodie Turner-Smith, in her first starring feature-film role), are pulled over for a minor traffic infraction. The situation escalates, with sudden and tragic results, when the man kills the police officer in self-defense. Terrified and in fear for their lives, the man, a retail employee, and the woman, a criminal defense lawyer, are forced to go on the run. But the incident is captured on video and goes viral, and the couple unwittingly become a symbol of trauma, terror, grief and pain for people across the country.

As they drive, these two unlikely fugitives will discover themselves and each other in the most dire and desperate of circumstances and will forge a deep and powerful love that will reveal their shared humanity and shape the rest of their lives.

Joining a legacy of films such Set It Off and Thelma & Louise, Queen & Slim is a powerful, consciousness-raising love story that confronts the staggering human toll of racism and the life-shattering price of violence.

The feature-film directorial debut from Melina Matsoukas (executive producer/director of HBO’s Insecure) stars Academy Award® nominee Daniel Kaluuya as “Slim” and rising star Jodie Turner-Smith (Syfy’s Nightflyers), as “Queen.” Waithe wrote the screenplay from a story by herself and bestselling author James Frey (A Million Little Pieces, Katerina).

“Fueled by pain and anger, fortified by strength and resolve, “Queen & Slim” is a righteous movie – one that’s angry about America’s refusal to confront the sins of racism and mournful about the enduring legacy of slavery.” Barbara VanDerburgh, Arizona Republic

“Game-changing work from screenwriter Lena Waithe, director Melina Matsoukas and actors Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith turn this tale of an outlaw couple on the run in Trump’s racially charged America into incendiary protest art.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“It makes bold narrative choices but backs them up with confidence, so there’s never any questioning Matsoukas’ vision. She’s delivered a potent love story for our times.” – Detroit News

“There’s no getting around the appeal of these two characters, as Kaluuya and Turner-Smith play them…” – Time

“How can you find fault with a movie that combines the intelligence of Ava DuVernay’s documentary 13th with the madcap energy of True Romance?” – London Evening Standard
