Jordan Peele’s directorial debut Get Out is one of US cinema’s biggest success stories of the year. The much-hyped horror has already taken over $30m at the box office and, as we write this, has a perfect rating of 100% on the Rotten Tomatoes website.
As one half of the cult sketch-comedy duo Key & Peele, this director can of course tell a joke with the best of them, but the story he’s come up with here shows there’s a more serious side to him. Get Out is the simple tale of a young woman taking her boyfriend home to meet the parents... but in the most nightmarish way possible.
Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) is nervous about his first weekend with his girlfriend Rose’s (Girls’ Allison Williams) parents. Initially everything seems fine and Chris is welcomed with open arms, but then he makes a series of strange discoveries that lead him down a horrific path he could never have imagined.
Either as a comment on US race relations or as a thriller to scare the bejesus out of you, Get Out is a must-watch. You can see it ahead of its UK release for free thanks to ShortList Film Club.
