Queen & Slim


Queen & Slim
Slim and Queen’s first date takes an unexpected turn when a policeman pulls them over for a minor traffic violation. When the situation escalates, Slim takes the officer’s gun and shoots him in self-defence. Now labelled cop killers in the media, Slim and Queen feel that they have no choice but to go on the run and evade the law. When a video of the incident goes viral, the unwitting outlaws soon become a symbol of trauma, terror, grief and pain for people all across the country.

Lynnette Nicholas quote iconRomantic thriller has violence, but there's love, too.

Jim Judy quote iconFor me, this one just doesn’t work due to distractingly stupid character actions that easily could have been fixed with another pass or two through the script rewriting process.
