Get Out

ho00004242Jordan Peele’s feature film debut as a director (he also wrote and produced) is a stunningly good horror film that echoes the eerie suburban world of Society (1989).

Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) is visiting his caucasian girlfriend Rose’s (Allison Williams)  parents for the weekend and things are a little bit off. Her parents (Bradley Whitford and Catherine Keener) and their friends are all very keen to meet an African-American and are all overly eager to get to know him. To say much more would be ruining the fun.

The first half of the film builds the peculiarity levels up to Lynchian levels and the second half lets the pressure off with a spectacularly elaborate denouement.

Highly recommended.
