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.
“Peele succeeds where sometimes even more experienced filmmakers fail: He’s made an agile entertainment whose social and cultural observations are woven so tightly into the fabric that you’re laughing even as you’re thinking, and vice-versa.” —Stephanie Zacharek, TIME
"...Brazenly inhabits the anxieties that surround miscegenation in our still racially stratified country. The movie’s sharp scares, gallows humor, and insidious intelligence are informed by the sensibility, and insistent paranoia, that lurks within the hearts of Blacks who must navigate white spaces. ” —Brandon Harris, New Yorker
“Blending race-savvy satire with horror to especially potent effect, this bombshell social critique from first-time director Jordan Peele proves positively fearless — which is not at all the same thing as scareless.” —Peter Debruge, Variety
