The Low-Down on “Get Out”
Looking for a good flick for this dreary, cold March week? We suggest checking out “Get Out,” a psychological horror film like you’ve never seen before. Comedian Jordan Peele’s debut as a director has definitely been a success, as he is the first black writer-director to surpass $100 million at the box office. That’s amazing, especially considering the movie was made on a $4.5 million budget!
The premise of this movie is an interracial couple (Daniel Kaluuya as “Chris” and Allison Williams as “Rose”) going to visit Rose’s family for an annual get together. Chris, who is black, is a little overwhelmed by the idea of going to meet Rose’s family, as her family is white and not aware that Rose is in an interracial relationship. Rose reassures Chris that it will be fine, they head off to her parents’ house, and from there, let’s just say things get weird (no spoilers here, but this movie has definitely earned the niche of psychological thriller).
At times hilarious, at times horrific, and also lightly touching on issues affecting interracial relationships, this movie is a gem. Definitely check it out while it’s in theaters for a thriller that will keep you guessing!
