The extraordinary tale of Harriet Tubman's escape from slavery and transformation into one of America's greatest heroes, whose courage, ingenuity, and tenacity freed hundreds of slaves and changed the course of history.

Consummate con man Roy Courtnay has set his sights on his latest mark: the recently widowed Betty McLeish, worth millions. But this time, what should have been a simple swindle escalates into a cat-and-mouse game with the ultimate stakes.
Two young British privates during the First World War are given an impossible mission: deliver a message deep in enemy territory that will stop 1,600 men, and one of the soldier's brothers, from walking straight into a deadly trap.
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 countryWritten by
The two main characters are never referred to as "Queen" or "Slim". In fact, including their interactions with each other and other characters, the only times they are referred to by name are in news reports covering the manhunt for them. The news reports only use their given names (Ernest Hines and Angela Johnson). See more »
Queen and Slim was directed by Melina Matsoukas and stars Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith. One major issue I noticed once it hit the halfway point was how slow the pacing was. It just started to drag a lot and added some unnecessary scenes. Also most of the decisions the characters in the film made make no sense whatsoever. However Daniel Kaluuya gave a great performance as this character as well as Jodie Turner-Smith in her role. This movie is no where near flawless but it is definitely enjoyable and worth the watch. It's a 7/10 from me!
