Malcolm & Marie on Netflix this February

Zendaya and John David Washington star in what is said to be a steamy and very intimate look at a beautiful young couple’s relationship.

As a filmmaker (John) awaits the pined-for financial and critical success of his new movie, his relationship with his girlfriend (Zendaya) is intensely examined. Filmed in black and white, it is already being hailed for its originality as well as old school romance.
