Movie Info

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.

  • It's tempting to fall for, thanks to impeccable work from Matsoukas and Kaluuya, but by the end, for a film so focused on love, I wanted to feel a bit more of it.

  • Not only reframes an outlaws-on-the-run story in thrillingly contemporary, culturally relevant terms, but also finds a way to do so that combines bracing honesty about a hostile world with lyrical beauty about the relationships that make it endurable.

  • Queen & Slim taps into a current of social outrage and depicts it with vehemence, sympathy and two true artists' visions melded into one.

  • "Queen & Slim" embodies a troubling historical moment not in spite of its puzzling twists and messy circumstances, but because of them.

  • It's a road movie that's timely - the plot reverberates with recent news stories, heartrending and enraging - but also untethered from headlines or the calendar, unfolding in a dreamscape defined by love and community, empowerment and the art of survival.

  • [Matsoukas] sees an opportunity to turn these two fictional characters into vigilante heroes, or martyrs for a cause, or both, and rather than play it frisky and in-your-face, she goes for iconic.
