Get Out, the exciting new film by comedian Jordan Peele takes a look at racism and the fetishization of black people by drawing on provocative elements from films like The Manchurian Candidate, The Stepford Wives and Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?
In the film, a white girl brings her black boyfriend home to meet her parents, and while he’s initially apprehensive about being immersed in an all white environment, he soon finds himself terrified as he’s trapped in a Twilight Zone experience by the family who want to make him a slave in a very unexpected way.
