All hail the Queen!

Jodie Turner-Smith is getting her shine on as the face of the November cover of ESSENCE magazine. The British-born model and actress with Jamaican roots is captured as never before by noted photographer JD Barnes. This is all in anticipation of her new film—Queen & Slim—which opens in theaters November 27.

As previously reported, the film follows Queen (Jodie Turner-Smith) and Slim (Daniel Kaluuya) a couple on their first date when a police officer pulls them over and things take an unexpected turn. The film is directed by Melina Matsoukas with a screenplay by Lena Waithe.
