Part horror comedy, part brutal social satire. When a young African-American man visits his white girlfriend's family estate, he becomes ensnared in a more sinister real reason for the invitation.
Released to wild acclaim, US comedian Jordan Peele’s (one half of US sketch comedy duo, Key & Peele) solo directorial debut is a superb achievement. Part horror comedy, part brutal social satire, it illuminatingly exploits the intimate horror of racial tensions by adding actual horror to the mix. African-American Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) goes with his white girlfriend Rose (Allison Williams) to visit her parents. At first, he reads their odd behaviour as a nervous attempt to deal with their interracial relationship – but as their weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined.
