Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!! I hope you’re all enjoying time with family and friends, good food, and lots of love. This post is over a month in the making. Last month, I had the pleasure of seeing an advanced screening of the highly anticipated film Queen & Slim. I went in with no expectations other than I knew I would probably be emotional after the movie was over. I was wrong. Emotional was an understatement. This movie stayed with me like good food stays on your bones. It’s a love story, it’s political, it has suspense, it has a little bit of everything.
The movie was written by Lena Waithe, the creator of The Chi. And features the most amazing soundtrack. Lena Waithe said that she wanted to create something that has the feeling of an old school movie where the soundtrack was as important as the film. And she succeeded.
I have been patiently waiting for this movie to come out, so that way I could discuss it with somebody! So after you have your last piece of pie or after you’ve shopped your heart out tomorrow, head over to the movies and see Queen & Slim. I promise you that you won’t be disappointed!
