“Melina Matsoukas not only fully develops her characters, but the challenges facing the Black community today and attitudes that still have not changed in terms of police brutality and civil rights.”

-Linda and Al Lerner, Movies and Shakers

B&W photo of Daniel Kaluuya (Slim) and Jodie Turner-Smith (Queen) posing for a photo sitting on the hood of a car.

While on a forgettable first date together in Ohio, a black man (Get Out’s Daniel Kaluuya) and a black woman (Jodie Turner-Smith, in her first starring feature-film role), are pulled over for a minor traffic infraction. The situation escalates, with sudden and tragic results, when the man kills the police officer in self-defense. Terrified and in fear for their lives, the man, a retail employee, and the woman, a criminal defense lawyer, are forced to go on the run. But the incident is captured on video and goes viral, and the couple unwittingly become a symbol of trauma, terror, grief and pain for people across the country.

Directed by Melina Matsoukas, DCP, 133 mins, 2019.
