Queen & Slim (November 27)
Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith star in Queen & Slim, a Bonnie and Clyde-esque story of a couple on the run after the killing of a cop. Bokeem Woodbine, Jahi Winston and Indya Moore also star in the film, directed by Melina Matsoukas and written by Lena Waithe.
The official description for the film: While on a forgettable first date together in Ohio, a Black man and a Black woman, 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 becomes 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.
