24th February
written by Adam

Chris Washington (Daniel Kaluuya), a young African-American with a keen eye for photography visits his girlfriend Rose’s (Allison Williams) Caucasian family at their spacious estate in the middle of nowhere. All seems normal at first, but strange coincidences and interactions with Mr and Mrs. Armitage (Bradley Whitford and Catherine Keener) begin to point Chris in the direction of the exit, but why, and will he get there fast enough? Written and Directed by Jordan Peele, one of the creative brains of comedic duo Key and Peele, this look to the classic horror/thriller genre bent towards racism in the 21st century and a politically correct world turns the model slightly on end to provide a poignant satire that is as socially critical as it is entertaining to watch. Splashed with Peele’s humor audiences will find sharp sub-context behind each joke and a rich appreciation for the genre. Plus, quirky but just believable enough performances from the ensemble keep this ride whizzing right up until its explosive end. Worth your while, Get Out is rated R.
