Starring: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Catherine Keener, Bradley Whitford, Caleb Landry Jones, Lil Rel Howery, Keith Stanfield
Horror written and directed by Jordan Peele, which follows Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), who have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating so Rose invites Chris for a weekend to meet her upper class parents, Missy (Catherine Keener) and Dean (Bradley Whitford).
Once there, Chris is unable to relax and is uncomfortable around Rose’s parents, which causes him to refuse an offer of hypnosis from Missy. He learns from a friend of his that Missy and Dean’s suburb has a sinister history of young black men disappearing. Increasingly unnerved, Chris is relieved to see another young black man, Andre (Keith Stanfield), at a garden party and approaches him, only for the other man to start shouting that he should “get out”. Chris finds that trying to follow Andre’s advice is easier said than done.REVIEWS
