Selah And The Spades


Bobby asks Paloma if she knows about Teela, who used to be a Boby until she was poached by the spades. She was high on acid and crashed into a goalpost and was expelled, despite never having used drugs before. Bobby tells Paloma she believes Selah set her up to take the fall to get the administration off them, since Selah always believes everything is for the greater good. Bobby tells Paloma the factions like her and not to let Selah let her think otherwise.




Selah and the Spades



Selah Summers (Lovie Simone) is the leader of the spades, one of five factions at Haldwell Boarding School. The spades are in charge of all the drug trade at the school. Selah has had trouble finding a successor until she meets Paloma (Celeste O'Connor), who she takes a liking to and begins showing the ropes.


  • A fan favourite at the 2020 TIFF Next Wave Festival, Selah and the Spades gives a stylish look at five factions vying for social supremacy at a posh Pennsylvania boarding school. The most powerful of these cliques is The Spades \u2014 led by the titular Selah (Lovie Simone, in a commanding performance) \u2014 who control the flow of drugs on campus right under the nose of the school\u2019s oblivious headmaster (Jesse Williams). As Selah falls out with her best friend and right hand, Maxxie (Jharrel Jerome), she tries to secure her legacy in successor Paloma (Celeste O\u2019Connor). A coolly assured first feature from writer-director Tayarisha Poe, Selah and the Spades serves up sumptuous production design, compelling performances, and hypnotic cinematography. Offering a fresh and surreal take on the mob-film subgenre by transposing it into a prep-school context, Selah and the Spades marks an exciting and utterly original debut for Poe.\r\n\r\nSTEPH GUTHRIE\r\n\r\nOfficial Selection, 2020 TIFF Next Wave Film Festival", "uploadDate": "2022-02-14T17:52", "name": "Selah and the Spades Trailer" }, "director": [ "@type": "Person", "name": "Tayarisha Poe" ], "actor": [], "editor": [], "countryOfOrigin": [ "@type": "Country", "name": "United States of America" ], "dateCreated": "2022-02-14T17:52"} "@context": "http:\/\/schema.org\/", "@type": "Event", "name": "Selah and the Spades", "description": "A fan favourite at the 2020 TIFF Next Wave Festival, Selah and the Spades gives a stylish look at five factions vying for social supremacy at a posh Pennsylvania boarding school.
