Race relations go to hell in writer-director Jordan Peele’s satirical scary movie.
A nightmarish version of Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner? plays out when white girl Rose (Allison Williams) takes her new African-American boyfriend, Chris (Daniel Kaluuya), to meet the parents during a weekend party at their country estate. Combining cringe-comedy and creepiness, Get Out features the most demented family gathering since You’re Next, and builds to a climax punctuated by big reveals and bursts of cathartic violence. Horror films have a long history of reflecting cultural anxieties amidst the scares, and Peele’s smart critique on race relations in the US couldn’t be more timely. To say any more would spoil the fun – get out and grab yourself a copy of this bold and brilliant little gem.
