To say there are high expectations for Get Out would be an understatement. Critically acclaimed from the beginning, Comedy Central stalwart Jordan Peele’s directorial debut is a smart and satirical horror comedy that looks at racism and how far we’ve come in the fight against it.
Starring Daniel Kaluuya (Black Mirror, Skins) and Allison Williams (Girls) as Chris Washington and Rose Armitage, the film centres on the couple’s trip to the country to spend the weekend with Rose’s parents for the first time. Chris’s nerves over the fact she hasn’t told her parents he’s black seem unfounded at first, as you laugh along with Rose as she teases him over his social anxiety. After all her father would have voted for Obama a third time if he could have. It’s all going to be fine, right?
