Called “very creepy, very funny and as pitiless as a surgeon’s scalpel” by The Guardian, Universal Pictures’ Get Out brings humor and stinging satire to the Coliseum this weekend. When a young African-American man, Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his white girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), visit her family estate and meet her parents, Missy (Catherine Keener) and Dean (Bradley Whitford), he becomes ensnared in a more sinister real reason for the invitation. At first, Chris 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.
Critic Comments: “Blending race-savvy satire with horror to especially potent effect, this bombshell social critique from first-time director Jordan Peele proves positively fearless – which is not at all the same thing as scareless. (Variety) “Get Out is refreshing in its naked, frank aggression about confronting racial issues, with comedy, drama, and sharp, unsparing insight.” (The Verge) “Part of what makes Get Out both exciting and genuinely unsettling is how real life keeps asserting itself, scene after scene” (The New York Times) “Get Out is fully surprising in both concept and craft, with the scares never coming just when you expect them and the secrets more audacious than you might be guessing.” (Village Voice) “It’s a little of everything: unnerving, funny in just the right way and at the right times, serious about its observations and perspectives on racial animus, straight-up populist when it comes to an increasingly (but not sadistically) violent climax. That’s entertainment!” (Chicago Tribune)
Get Out will be shown at the Coliseum Theater, 100 North Maple Street, Lamoni on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 6:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. It is rated R by the MPAA for violence, bloody images, and language including sexual references. It runs for 104 minutes.
