Queen & Slim

A complex film with many layers from Emmy Award-winning writer Lena Waithe, Makeready’s Queen & Slim explores America’s social and political climate through the lens of a genre-defying love story. When a black man and black woman on a first date are pulled over by a police officer at a traffic stop, their life goes awry. Forced to kill him in self-defense, rather than turn themselves in, they must go on the run.

Canada/USA 2019, 132 min, Dir: Melina Matsoukas
