Wenlei Ma News.com.au Queen & Slim bowls you over with its powerful, charged story. Not one to be missed. Rated: 4/5 Apr 6, 2020 Full Review David Stratton The Australian An excellent, hard-hitting new film about race relations in America today... Rated: 4/5 Mar 13, 2020 Full Review Sandra Hall Sydney Morning Herald A thoroughly moral tale told with great flair. Rated: 4/5 Mar 11, 2020 Full Review Brittany Patrice Witherspoon Pop Culture Reviews Witnessing two beautiful, dark-skinned people fall in love is always just cause for celebration especially on the big screen. But why can’t stories like this ever be done without trauma? It’s tired and offensive. And audiences deserve better. Rated: 2.5/5 Jul 14, 2024 Full Review Lawrence Ware The Root Queen & Slim Should Have Been a Great Movie Rated: C Oct 13, 2023 Full Review Greg Carlson Vague Visages The desperate need to locate hope and light (and maybe even love where those things are in short supply) recommends Queen and Slim, especially at a time of frustration and division.

I thought it was well written with good visuals and a great soundtrack. All the actors did a great job. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/18/20 Full Review Felicia Great movie! Must see it proves that as human beings we act in the moment and you feel justified, we often run and hide because what others may feel or think. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/09/20 Full Review Joyce C Even though the chemistry between the two characters was not there in the beginning, the unfortunate circumstances that brought them together made this a very interesting road trip movie. Enjoyed watching how much their relationship developed and then slowly shift into a deeper meaning. I found myself rooting for these characters to reach their destination, safely! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/05/20 Full Review Read all reviews
