Regardless of the story itself and its debatable originality, the film tries to send different messages and succeeds through a series of events, well-written and contextualized so that the viewer, in addition to perceiving the meaning of this film, makes it a liberating journey, but with a lot of introversion. Film directed with audacity, written with purpose, played with passion; Queen & Slim ranks among those irreverent films where evil and good confuse and merge into complex and non-complex characters, finding themselves in extreme situations where the only way out is to live in the moment.
