Dir. Jordan Peele | USA | 2017 | 104 min. | R | DCP
Now that Chris (Best Actor nominee Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend Rose (Allison Williams) have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener) and Dean (Bradley Whitford). 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.
The debut feature from the mind of comedian-turned-multiple-Oscar-nominee Jordan Peele (of Key and Peele fame), this modern horror masterpiece is equal parts gripping thriller and provocative social commentary. Winner of the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.
