Jordan Peele Receives High Praise For His Film GET OUT.
Jordan Peele is having a directorial debut countless hopefuls wish for. To the entertainment world, Peele is an accomplished comedian. But now Mr. Peele just expanded his talents and it comes in the form of a ballsy innovative horror film called GET OUT. A genre so hungry for originality, Peele delivers.
GET OUT is about an interracial couple. And now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya – SICARIO)and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams – HBO’s ‘Girls’), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Cathrine Keener – CAPTAIN PHILLIPS) and Dean (Bradley Whitford – CABIN IN THE WOODS).
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.
Equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary, GET OUT is written and directed by Peele (KEY AND PEELE) and produced by Blumhouse’s Jason Blum (INSIDIOUS series, THE VISIT), as well as Sean McKittrick (DONNIE DARKO, BAD WORDS) and Edward H. Hamm Jr. (BAD WORDS).
The film also stars Caleb Landry Jones (X-MEN series), Stephen Root (NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN), Milton “Lil Rel” Howery (THE CARMICHAEL SHOW), Betty Gabriel (THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR), Marcus Henderson (PETE’S DRAGON) and Lakeith Stanfield (STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON).
“Art is the one tool we have against the true horrors of the world. I hope that GET OUT is an inclusive experience that inspires people to just talk.” – Jordan Peele
