MALCOLM & MARIE
Writer/Director: Sam Levinson
Starring: John David Washington, Zendaya
Zendaya recently won an Emmy for her role on HBO’s Euphoria. When she and creator Sam Levinson couldn’t film Season 2 due to the pandemic, they decided to pivot in a new direction making the film Malcolm & Marie instead. This is a two-person film with John David Washington starring as the other title character, Malcolm. They arrive home after the big premiere of Malcolm’s new film, but tensions are high after he didn’t thank Marie during the premiere. Despite the fact she doesn’t want to talk about, he can’t go to bed angry. This snowballs into a highly escalated couple’s fight about their relationship and the roles they play in each other’s careers.
