Directed by Jordan Peele
2017, USA, 104 min

Jordan Peele, Emmy-winning creator/star of Comedy Central’s sketch series Key and Peele, made his film debut with this incredibly sharp horror film. The film follows a young African-American man (Daniel Kaluuya) who has reached a dating milestone with his girlfriend (Allison Williams): she invites him for a weekend getaway at the mysterious estate of her parents (Bradley Whitford, Catherine Keener). At first, the young man 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.

Followed by a panel discussion and presented in partnership with Black Space Winnipeg.

Presented in partnership with Black Space Winnipeg.

Reviews

Absolutely intoxicating and terrifying. It’s wonderful cinema that offers so much to discuss, particularly about racism among middle America.
