In Get Out, a young African-American man visits his white girlfriend’s family estate and becomes ensnared in a more sinister reason for the invitation. The first clip introduced Daniel Kaluuya’s character to Allison Williams’ family, and there’s subtle racism glossed over by smiles, while the second carries more racial undertones. Jordan Peele’s film is racially charged, as shown in this third clip that’s just as unnerving. In it, Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams) are stopped by the police, only the officer is more concerned with interrogating the passenger, who happens to be black. The UK one-sheets, below, also echo the film’s social commentary…
In theaters February 24, 2017, we posted one of the first ever reviews out of Sundance’s secret screening.
Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams, Girls), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener, Captain Phillips) and Dean (Bradley Whitford, The Cabin in the Woods).
At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior 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.
The film also stars Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men series), Milton “Lil Rel” Howery (The Carmichael Show), Betty Gabriel (The Purge: Election Year), Marcus Henderson (Pete’s Dragon) and Keith Stanfield (Straight Outta Compton).
