Who knew a cup of tea could be used like that?
In a secluded estate, a young African-American goes to meet his white girlfriend’s parents. Concerned that they might not like that he’s black. But they’re welcoming and throw a gathering to introduce him to others in the neighbourhood. It soon begins to become apparent that something isn’t right. But he’s not quick enough at putting the clues together to Get Out.
Starring Daniel Kaluuya (Sicario, Welcome to the Punch), Allison Williams (Girls, Peter Pan Live), Bradley Whitford (The Cabin in the Woods, Saving Mr. Banks), and Catherine Keener (The 40 Year Old Virgin, Capote).
Get Out – seriously, run! **There may be Spoilers Ahead**
I was a little confused with the early part of this movie, everything felt awkward – but then I suppose it does when you go to meet your significant other’s parents for the first time. This, after all, indicates that they are somewhat serious about you. And let’s be honest, those conversations with your newly met potential in-laws are rarely smooth sailing.
Even though I knew they were interested in him for other reasons I wasn’t expecting it to go the way it did. That is to say, I thought they were setting them loose and then hunting them down for sport. I liked that what they were doing was unexpected. It explained the creepiness. The weird vibe. The sudden and unrequested hypnotherapy.
Get Out Movie Review Conclusion
I might watch it again – Get Out was nothing that I was expecting, despite having watched the trailers and read reviews. They didn’t want the boyfriend for sport as I was expecting (well maybe someone did – was the blind guy married?). I loved the changing characters, the slow realisation, the slight comedic vibe. Going to meet the parents is hard enough in the first place.
