Queen & Slim

Directed by Melina Matsoukas

Movie poster for “Queen & Slim”.

A first date takes a fateful turn when a racist cop stops the two for a minor traffic violation. The cop ends up dead. They flee, and a days-long chase through the US ensues.

This film is very much fitting regarding the current #blacklivesmatter movement. It showcases on a few occasions how black people feel about the police; and how one might react when the police is rather considered an enemy than a friend.

It’s also a film about loneliness, companionship, trust and love.

Thumbs up!
