From trailblazing, Emmy-winning columnist Lena Waithe( Netflix’s Master of None) and Melina Matsoukas, the utopian lead of some of this generation’s most powerful pop-culture knowledge, including Beyonce’s “Formation” and the Nike “Equality” campaign, comes Makeready’s unflinching new drama, Queen& Slim.
While on a forgettable first year together in Ohio, a black worker( Get Out’s Daniel Kaluuya) and a black maid( Jodie Turner-Smith, in her first stellar feature-film role ), are plucked over for a minor traffic infraction. The situation intensifies, with sudden and shocking decisions, when the man kills the police officer in self-defense. Terrified and in panic for their own lives, the three men, a retail employee, and the woman, a criminal defense lawyer, are forced to go on the run. But the accidents is captured on video and travels viral, and the couple unwittingly become a symbol of trauma, horror, remorse and sting for people across the country.
As they drive, these two unlikely fugitives will detect themselves and each other in the most dire and desperate of circumstances, and will forge a depth and strong compassion that will reveal their shared humanity and shape the rest of their lives.
Joining a gift of movies such as Bonnie and Clyde and Thelma& Louise, Queen& Slim is a potent, consciousness-raising love story that tackles the overwhelming human fee of racism and the life-shattering price of violence.
Waithe wrote the script based on an original theory by bestselling author James Frey( A Million Little Pieces, Katerina ). The feature-film directorial debut from Melina Matsoukas( executive farmer of HBO’s Insecure) performs Academy Award( r) nominee Daniel Kaluuya as “Slim” and rising star Jodie Turner-Smith( Syfy’s Nightflyers ), as “Queen.”
Waithe renders the cinema via her busines, Hillman Grad Product, along with Matsoukas via her yield fellowship, De La Revolucion Films. Frey renders via his make companionship, 3BlackDot, alongside Andrew Coles and Michelle Knudsen.
Queen& Slim is financed by Makeready and will be distributed by Universal Pictures worldwide, with eOne handling distribution in select fields including the U.K. and Canada.
