Get Out


Joshlynn Murphy

On February 24, 2017, “Get Out”was released in the mystery/thriller category. Film director and screenplay writer, Jordan Peele, who is an actor himself, planned this movie based on  interracial relationships and different race relation problems in our community today. I actually like this movie. It brought up  a lot of issues that have happened in the black community.

Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached their meet-the-parents milestone of dating, so she invites him for a weekend getaway with her parents Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s odd behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend continues, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined.

According to Newser, “Get Out is the fastest film in the Blumhouse movie production company’s portfolio to reach $100 million, hitting that mark in just 16 days (the previous record-holder was Split in 19 days), Deadline notes.”

Out of five stars, I give this movie a 5. It was an excellent movie that everyone should go see. Not only African Americans, but people of all races. It shows different situations that everyone can relate too and see what life is all about.
