Get Out was among the earliest films 2017 threw up. The film captured a very important issue that is still in the front burner of the psyche of Americans but one which many people are not comfortable discussing about.

The American society may be a very liberal one and racism may no longer be as bad as it was during the time of Martin Luther King and blacks generally along with other people of color have been able to climb the social ladder, and even managed to produce a president in the person of Barack Obama, however, racism has not been stamped out completely and Get Out was able to capture it succinctly just the way the American society is battling with it.

The film is about a young black man Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) who fell in love with Rose (Allison Williams) but Rose’s father wasn’t in the least excited about it.

Get Out was written and directed by Jordan Peele. it was first released in January 24, 2017 and was distributed by universal pictures. The film’s running time is 104 minutes and cast a relatively modest $4.5 million in production budget figures while it generated a staggering $253.1 million through the box office globally.

The Plot

Chris was a black photographer who fell in love with a white girl named Rose but her parents, especially her father Dean wasn’t too excited about her choice.

As time went by, things gradually got out of hand as Chris struggled to fit in against all odds. In a twist of faith, events turned out to be quite different from what he had thought and Chris realized that Dean, his wife Missy as well as their daughter Rose were up to no good and the assertion that there is a thin line between love and hate proves true as he found himself almost murdering Rose in cold blood before old feelings of love held him back.

The film has horror as well as comedy scenes with good delivery that will impress the audience.

Get Out had an excellent approval rating of 99% on Rotten Tomatoes soon after it was released.
