Film No. 23 (2017) Get Out April 5th.

Film No. 23 (2017) April 5th.  6.30 PM Greater Union Event Cinema, Innaloo.

"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.
