From Zendaya, to Natalie Portman, to Snoop Dogg, the love was felt at the Los Angeles, premiere of Queen & Slim.
Jodie Turner-Smith is magnetic, the cinematography, “refreshing” as Kelly Rowland, said while praising the film. “it makes you smile big and cry hard.”
When you think of the socio-political climate within the black community currently, you can’t help but realized that there is more to this story than it just being for sell, “It’s a meditation on the black experience, ” Director Melina Matakous, said.
Together the two women create the “Ying and Yang” Daniel Kaluuya, said, “they’re a force of nature there’s nothing they can’t do together.” Both Waithe and Matsoukas will make their Big Screen Debut.
Stories told from our perspectives. Dialogue is what is wanted from this art, Matsoukas expressed.
Trust you’re in for the intimate experience, the ability to capture glamour in darkness is about as literal and figural Matsoukas’ cinematography gets. There is no escaping scenes shot, frame by frame to piece together the story entrusted to Matsoukas eyes. Lena Waithe penned THE SCREENPLAY, (caps used intentionally as a reflection of its praise from the lips of the guest invited to the Los Angeles, premiere!!!)
The film opens, Nov. 27th, Thanksgiving weekend and I want you to take you sisters, cousins, brothers, uncles. It’s worth your interpretation, it’s worth your dialogue.
