Directed by Jordan Peele, Get Out is a thriller with a hint of horror about a young African-American man who visits his white girlfriend’s family estate, and becomes ensnared in a more sinister real reason for the invitation.
Brilliantly played by Daniel Kaluuya as Chris, he at first reads the family’s overly accommodating behaviour as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship. But as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.
Equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary, Get Out is written and directed by Jordan Peele, who went on to make Us in 2019.
“Get Out is the sharpest, most thoughtful, and against all odds, the funniest horror film that Hollywood has churned out in a long old while.” Metro
“Get Out is confident and assured and in director Peele, the 21st century has found a new voice in horror.” Daily Record
