Queen & Slim

Dir. Melina Matsoukas. USA, 2019. 2h 12m. Starring Daniel Kaluuya, Jodie Turner-Smith, Bokeem Woodbine, Chloë Sevigny, Flea, Sturgill Simpson, Indya Moore.

While on their first date, a young couple is pulled over by a police officer for questioning. The encounter escalates rapidly and they soon find themselves on the run. A blistering modern take on the Bonnie and Clyde story takes us on an unflinching journey through the heartlands of modern America.

‘Queen & Slim tackles urgent, difficult subjects with bravery, care and adrenalised genre cool. But it triumphs because it shows you the personal toll beyond the politics. And how black lives brimming with potential can still turn on one fateful moment.’ ★★★★ Jimi Famurewa, Empire Magazine

'It’s a terrifically tactile film, full of the kind of deliciously observed detail that lingers in the mind long after the movie has finished.’ ★★★★ Mark Kermode, The Observer
