The Best Film Of The Year Is Here!
I just saw “Get Out” and let me tell you – it’s a terrific movie theater experience!
Director Jordon Peele is best known for starring in the Comedy Central sketch series “Key & Peele” and for his five seasons as a cast member on “MADtv.”
“Get Out” is his directorial debut – and I describe it best as a horror version of “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner!”
I am only going to share the basic outline of the film:
Daniel Kaluuya and Allison Williams star as the young inter-racial couple in love, and
Catherine Keener and Bradley Whitford are her parents – who invite them to their country estate for the weekend.
Here is the trailer:
Yes, just a fun weekend with the white folks! Now, there is NOTHING else I am going to share about this film, because it should be seen with NO idea of where it is going – but it is smart, topical, self-aware, darkly funny and very scary – the best film of 2017 so far!
Jordan Peele cited the original Night of the Living Dead (1968) as an inspiration for making this his feature film writing-directing debut, because the film had an African American protagonist and dealt with serious racial issues inside the framework of a horror movie.
And that is EXACTLY what you get here! I cannot recommend this film more highly! Bravo to the entire cast and crew!
