Queen $ Slim

The Universal Pictures film Queen & Slim opens in theaters nationwide on November 27th.

While on a forgettable first date together in Ohio, a Black man (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.

BGN’s Jeandra Lebeauf sat down with director Melina Matsoukas, actors Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith, as well as writer Lena Waithe about the highly anticipated getaway flick coming this holiday season. As Jeandra states in her interviews, this is more than just a “Bonnie & Clyde” story, there is a depth and a nuance to the story of these two characters that will have audiences talking about it for some time.
