Queen & Slim, the feature-film directorial debut from Melina Matsoukas stars Academy Award nominee Daniel Kaluuya as ‘Slim’ and rising star Jodie Turner-Smith as ‘Queen’.
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 instantly making the duo fugitives. The unflinching new drama is a powerful, consciousness-raising love story that confronts the staggering human toll of racism and the life-shattering price of violence.
In partnership with Palace Cinemas, RUSSH Film Club is hosting a special free screening of Queen & Slim on Tuesday, March 3 at 6:30pm at Palace Central.
