Dir. Jordan Peele. USA, 2017. 1h 44m. Starring Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Catherine Keener, Bradley Whitford, Caleb Landry Jones, Lil Rel Howery.
It’s time for Chris to meet his girlfriend’s parents. However, maintaining awkward chit-chat with her rich white family should be the the least of his worries. Jordan Peele’s critically acclaimed satirical horror, which skilfully plays on racial tensions and paranoia in the US, strikes at the dark heart of supposedly liberal America.
‘Get Out is very creepy, very funny and as pitiless as a surgeon’s scalpel.’ ★★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
‘Peele manages to perfectly balance suspense, humour, and horror while making a hard-hitting political statement about liberal America; a remarkable and timely feat considering the state of the world in 2017.’ ★★★★★ Jack Shepherd, The Independent
