Get Out
Jordan Peele | USA | 2017 | 104m | 15

Get Out One of the best reviewed films of the year, a brilliantly subversive take on liberal America masquerading as a low budget horror flick. Chris, a young African-American man visits his Caucasian girlfriend's mysterious family estate. At first, he reads the family's overly accommodating behaviour 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 never could have imagined.
