- “Get Out“ (R)
A horror thriller that stars British actor Daniel Kaluuya as an African-American who visits his white girlfriend’s secluded family estate to meet her parents for the first time. He’s then shocked to discover there’s a much more sinister reason for the invitation.
The mom’s a psychiatrist who “innocently” offers to hypnotize him to help him stop smoking, but the few black people he meets have no sense of their own culture and it soon becomes obvious to him that they’re struggling under some kind of mind control.
Allison Williams from “Girls” plays his girlfriend, and her malevolent parents are played by Bradley Whitford and Catherine Keener.
The movie’s written and directed by Jordan Peele from “Key & Peele”.
This is his first time directing, and it’s sort of a blend of “The Stepford Wives” and the classic Sidney Poitier drama “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner”.
