When a young African-American man visits his white girlfriend’s family estate, he becomes ensnared in a more sinister real reason for the invitation.

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.

Equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary, GET OUT made movie history this year. The film earned more than $100 million at the U.S. box office, making Peele the first African-American writer-director to pass that threshold with his first feature film. Perhaps even more remarkable, film critics, who are usually quite sniffy about horror films, also love the film. It currently holds a near perfect 99% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Wall Street Journal - "A memorable horror flick if ever there was one, Get Out starts with a great title and a promising idea -- a black man's fear as he walks at night down a street in an affluent white suburb. Then it delivers on that promise with explosive brilliance."

Boston Globe - "It is not only the best horror film since Under the Skin, but a subversive and often hilarious commentary on race as well."

Rolling Stone - "A jolt-a-minute horrorshow laced with racial tension and stinging satirical wit. How is one movie all that? See Get Out, from debuting director Jordan Peele, and get woke."
