Win tickets to a free preview of Queen and Slim!

FLAW IN THE IRIS is giving away 10 PAIRS OF TICKETS to an advance screening of the new eOne drama Queen & Slim.

The advance screening takes place at Cineplex Cinemas Park Lane in Halifax on Monday, November 25th at 7pm. Queen & Slim opens in theatres on Wednesday, November 27.

The film is directed by Melina Matsoukas and written by Lena Waithe, starring Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out) and newcomer Jodie Turner-Smith. Here’s a plot synopsis and the trailer:

While on a forgettable first date together in Ohio, a black man and a black woman 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-defence. Terrified and in fear for their lives, the man, a retail employee, and the woman, a criminal defence 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.

Winning one these pairs of tickets to Queen & Slim couldn’t be easier:
