    While not a film I would normally have sought out, I enjoyed QUEEN & SLIM more than I expected, although my rating of the film itself wouldn't be much higher than the above - maybe a 3 out of 5.

    I was very impressed by the performances of both leads (like John Boyega in the STAR WARS films, you would have no idea from their voices that both Kaluuya and Turner-Smith were British rather than American). What frustrated me was the uneven screenplay: while the dialogue was occasionally brilliant, the plot machinations were so illogical that they took me out of the film.

    Still glad I saw it.

    Wow, most people I talked to about this film had a higher film grade than 2.

    Thought this was an excellent, excellent film.

    Well worth a purchase!

    I loved it, too. The “political statement on the social, racial and sexual divide in this country” is what made it more interesting.

    I just bought the 4K digital on Vudu for $9.99. It's also a MA title so it's 4K on iTunes too.
