What’s your definition of a “ride or die”? 

The beauty of Queen and Slim lies in the relationship between the two main characters. At the beginning of the movie, they despised each other. If nothing about that night was out of the ordinary, the two would have gone their separate ways after the Tinder date, never to see each other again. But after a devastating accident, Queen and Slim were forced to rely on each other. Through tragedy, love grew. 

The film makes me question what I would do in a similar high-pressure situation. Would I make the same decisions as Queen or Slim? The best films start up conversations that often would never happen otherwise. Queen and Slim is a thought-provoking movie that begs to be discussed.
