GET OUT is a new speculative thriller featuring a young African-American man who visits his white girlfriend’s family estate and 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 the family. 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. Equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary, Get Out is written and directed by Jordan Peele (Key and Peele).
