Queen & Slim Red Carpet, With Daniel Kaluuya, Jodie Turner Smith, Melina Matsoukas, & More

UK PREMIERE SCREENING OF QUEEN & SLIM TUESDAY 28 JANUARY RICH MIX CINEMA. 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. Afraid 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. 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.

 

QUEEN & SLIM will be released across the UK & Ireland on 31 January
