Read my spoiler-free movie review of Malcolm & Marie (2021).
Director Sam Levinson’s latest drama/romance has Zendaya and John David Washington as Malcolm & Marie.
Malcolm & Marie is the story of a director and his girlfriend’s relationship. One that is tested after they return home from his movie premiere and await critics’ responses
First and foremost, I love the lighting. It’s not often that black and white movies are as immediately appealing, visually as this.
I’m completely in for what looks like an intriguing relationship story and very promising dialogue. The kind of dialogue that would work brilliantly on a live theatre stage.
Thank goodness, we don’t have to wait too long for this one.
Malcolm & Marie Release Dates: February 5th, 2021 (US), Netflix
Happy Film Loving

Looks good for the reasons you mention. In real life if you can find two people willing to carry on an honest emotionally intense dialogue for 90 minutes you’ve struck gold. Maybe this movie can be a how-to as an antidote to the usual one-always-walks-away-to-avoid-intimacy.
I couldn’t agree with you more! Honest, respectful conversation is gold, indeed. It’s harder to find than most of us initially realise. Especially since everyone has their emotional baggage. But, the commitment to do the work, with that in place, so much is possible.
