I started my weekend with such a great feeling film event at the BFI in South Bank. A few months ago Niat my friend bought us tickets to see the preview for Queen & Slim.
The movie was more than I expected it to be, and yes I cried. I cried because as much as they added some bits that in reality isn’t logical at least not for black people. I still loved the whole movie, cried and felt it. It was funny and it had culture but still a whole load if anxiety because all you think is; what the fuck would I do in that position?
I don’t want to tell too much about the movie because I do think everyone should watch it. It is very good movie and it makes you laugh. Not a typical American movie but it reminds me of Moonlight. If you haven’t seen it yet, please do. The pictures and the artistic way Queen and Slim is filmed. More movies like this, my type of movies.
After the movie we stayed to have a glass of wine and wind down before going home. I had olives like always, I live olives and these ones tasted like feta cheese. Anyway, came home pretty late but it was a good Friday evening.
