Chris is an African-American photographer; his girlfriend of five months, Rose, is white. And rich. When Rose invites him to spend the weekend at her family’s sprawling country estate, Chris is reluctant. What if they’re racist? Has Rose even told her family he’s black? But as the weekend drags on, Chris realises that he’s going to have much more to deal with than awkward conversations…
1) Did you like it?
Yep. I’m not even a horror fan and I loved Get Out.
Here’s the spoiler free version: Get Out is a film about racism in every form – from the well-intentioned racism of young, “woke” white people trying (and failing) to do the right thing, to awkward dinner party conversations, to racial violence and slavery. It’s smart and scary and it’ll make you think.
3) You’ll enjoy this movie if…
You’re into films that have you on the edge of your seat…not only because they’re scary, but also because they make you aware of uncomfortable truths about yourself and your society.
4) This movie made me think about…
Lots. Get Out is a nailbiter of a film that will have you thinking about it long after your nails have grown back. Make sure you Google the film’s alternate endings, too. Yikes.
