Thanks to Universal Pictures Australia, ccpopculture has 5 double passes to give away to Queen & Slim, releasing in Australian cinemas Thursday March 12th.
“From two-time Grammy award winning director Melina Matsoukas (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), 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. Queen & Slim in in select cinemas March 12.”
A modern-day reinterpretation of Bonnie and Clyde helmed by the ever-impressive Daniel Kaluuya that cuts to the heart of contemporary race relations? I’m sold. If you’re also interested, then look no further!
