Get Out (Jordan Peele – 2017) A

What a good surprise from director Jordan Peele, half the comedy duo “Key and Peele”! Chris, an African American, is on his way with his white girlfriend to meet her parents for the first time. They are affluent, the own a lovely big house in the woods, they seem overly nice and her mom is a psychotherapist who practices hypnosis. What could possibly go wrong? What happens next is a mix of well-made funny exciting thriller and sharp social commentary with excellent performances. The plot might be preposterous but it works very well on all levels and is very tightly crafted and driected. Peele’s a good director, develops smart characters and creates an atmosphere that keeps us on edge from the moment the couple get on the road to the parents’ house till the crazy finale.
