Now that Chris and his girlfriend, Rose, have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean.
At first, Chris 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.
Get Out has become a horror classic for our times.
Originally released in 2017.
WHAT THE PRESS SAY
“Beneath the beatific smile of 21st-century liberalism, Get Out finds the still grinning ghoulish skull of age-old servitude and exploitation unveiled during a rollercoaster ride into a very American nightmare.”
Mark Kermode, The Observer
“Is it too early to call this a modern genre classic?”
Trevor Johnston, Sight & Sound
“It’s a brilliantly mischievous, unsettling movie.”
Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
DID YOU KNOW…?
Daniel Kaluuya was given the lead role on the spot after nailing his audition. Writer, co-producer, and director Jordan Peele said Kaluuya did about five takes of a key scene, in which his character needs to cry, and each was so perfect that the single tear came down at the exact same time for each take.
Jordan Peele said the title is also a reference to what he often hears black audiences shout at the screen while watching horror films: Yelling at a character to “Get out!” In this movie Rod and Andre both say it to Chris.
