Chris and his girlfriend Rose go upstate to visit her parents for the weekend. 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 never could have imagined.Written by
The song playing in the beginning of the film when Chris is packing for the weekend is "Redbone" by Childish Gambino. Writer, co-Producer, and Director Jordan Peele wanted that song because of its lyrics, including, "stay woke" and "don't close your eyes." See more »
When Chris is shaving, the razor clearly has no blades since the shaving cream is merely being smeared around his face. See more »
How often do we encounter actors speaking through their eyes? Daniel Kaluuya is riveting in his scared-to-death sequences (especially the first time when Catherine Keener hypnotizes him) and what really gets you here is that, so is the audience. Get Out is of course Jordan Peele's show in every frame but it is more of the Jordan-the director and not Jordan-the writer, for even though being familiar with the concept or idea the audience seems to fall into his world within the first act which was actually shot more beautifully and with excellent detailing for Jordan knew that this is the part where the audience may go off track and after the movie has surpassed the first act and the introduction of its creepy world and dreadful characters, the premise of the movie will easily favour in for the rest of the acts. Besides Daniel there is very little of the other cast to perform on or project themselves to that range so it resides within his territory and he has taken care of it, nicely. Get Out is smart, a bit shady and surprisingly filled with stunning violent sequences which ups the ante a bit and boosts the movie to the whole new level where it plays off in the major league against the action sequences of the movies like The Revenant and The Atomic Blonde.
