Malcolm and Marie 2021
Film screenwriter and director Malcolm Elliott (John David Washington) and his girlfriend Marie Jones (Zendaya) return home from the film premiere. Malcolm is eagerly looking forward to his film arousing an enthusiastic response from the audience after the premiere screening. When he found Marie looked unhappy, he urged her to tell him what was bothering her. She did not want to fight late at night at first, but he told him that he was not thanked or admitted that he was unhappy in his speech at the premiere.
Marie believes that she is the basis for his filming, which is a drama about the black female drug addict Imani trying to recover, because she was a drug addict when she met. Malcolm dismissed her allegations, claiming that Imani was not based on her, but a fusion of different ethnic groups. Marie insisted that if they were not together, he would not realistically portray Imani’s struggle with drug and addiction.
Malcolm believes that Marie has overreacted because she has withdrawn from acting and is jealous of the actress who played Imani, and she is projecting her personal problems on him and his films. Marie affirmed her position in Malcolm but did not admit that she was the source of inspiration for the film. When Mary was in the bath, Malcolm described the different women who interacted with Imani and inspired her character and pointed out that only Imani’s sense of despair was based on Mary.
Later, Malcolm found and read the first critic reviews of his films. Although the comments are positive, he still appreciates the political interpretation of his films by white female film critics because he does not intend to politicize them. He lamented that film critics paid too much attention to his black male identity and projected politics into their interpretation of the films of non-white male filmmakers instead of judging his merits as a filmmaker. Marie laughed at his overreaction to positive comments, and the two seemed to reconnect after their arguments.

Before the two started having sex, Marie asked him why he didn’t think of her as an Imani, and she angered him because she believed she would bring vulnerability and authenticity to the character, which could make the movie greater. Then the two angrily accused each other of their professional ambitions. Then Marie took out a knife and played a scene like Imani as if she was still a drug addict. She was terrified of Malcolm’s persuasive power but left Malcolm behind a deep impression. The two went to their bedroom and quarreled again until Mary taught him his need for self-feeding and a lack of understanding of how their true love for each other inspired the movie.
When the two went to bed, they said nothing to each other, but thanked each other before going to bed. Malcolm woke up alone in bed in the morning. He found Marie outside alone, and when they looked into the distance, she joined her, but the fate of their relationship was unknown.
In September 2020, Netflix obtained the distribution rights for the film for $30 million, surpassing companies such as HBO, A24, and Searchlight Pictures. It will be shown in select theaters on January 29, 2021, and then on Netflix on February 5, 2021. Deadline The Hollywood Reporter “made hardly any money” during the theater’s release.
