"Mum and Dad, my black boyfriend will be coming up this weekend. I don't want you to be shocked, but he's a black man" (Rose mockingly paraphrases a conversation she might have with her parents prior to taking Chris home for the weekend).
When an invite to a preview arrives for a movie still a month out from release (Australia) there is a good chance the film is creating a buzz. In the case of Get Out that was precisely the noise coming from the U.S. after the $35M weekend release in late February. And yes, it does deserve the attention, it is an entertaining potboiler of a film. Like a jigsaw you'll be placing pieces together for days after. Most of all, it blends comedy with the ridiculous then seamlessly gives a positive spin on racism; an issue that continues to dog Americans. 10GUMS.
