Storyline Heading
A Black couple 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.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This is a gritty drama with social commentary aimed at young adult viewers, in particular urban audiences. Daniel Kaluuya and relative newcomer Jodie Turner-Smith play the leads, with some other familiar faces such as Bokeem Woodbine and Chloe Sevigny having much smaller roles. Constant language, some bloody violence, drug use, and sexual content make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good "Queen & Slim" is a road movie, more than it is anything else. ... it's a wonderful experience watching a film where the characters are given so much space. Matsoukas does not feel rushed, she does not feel like she needs to hurry them along from place to place.

NY Post Full Review
Very Good Visually, "Queen & Slim” is a Thanksgiving feast. But Matsoukas also finds two first-rate performances in Kaluuya and Turner-Smith. Theirs is one of the more carefully paced romances in recent memory, and the subtle way their tension switches from fear to desire is masterful.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Above Average Queen & Slim exudes across its opening minutes the concision of an old B movie, setting up its central characters and conflict without an ounce of fat. Matsoukas incorporates into the film a great deal of imagery that links the fears and anxieties of today's African-Americans to the history of racist abuse.
