Screener Squad: Selah and the Spades

Selah and the Spades Movie Review


Selah is having a stressful time. Highschool is nearly over, her mother is pushing her into a future she doesn’t want, and her organized crime club in school has a mole in it. When Paloma comes into her life, she finds a friend to help her through her troubled times…and to manipulate into doing horrible things. Come join Aaron, London, and Lewayne as they explore this aggressively indie, sorta drama, sorta crime film from a first-time filmmaker who we all think might just be destined for great things.


DIRECTED BY: Tayarisha Poe

STARRING: Lovie Simone, Celeste O’Connor, Jharrel Jerome, Gina Torres, Jesse Williams, Ana Mulvoy-Ten, Benjamin Breault, Evan Roe, Cody Sloan, Rae Bell
